Welcome to the Wolf Pack!
Why I’m lacing up
I was diagnosed in 2013 with Replase and Remitting MS after a month and a half of being bedridden followed by months of not knowing what was wrong.
As I got better, I had to learn to walk again, learn to speak again, type again and live once more. I had to learn to redo everything that I could have normally done without thinking about it.
When I was able to do it, I signed up for the MS Walk. I wanted to prove that I could do it and walk for those that have it so much worse with their MS. I wanted to walk for those that couldn’t. Each year, it is a reminder of how strong I’ve become but how far we have yet to go.
My body had become a strange and unknown thing. I set about learning as much as I could about what it was capable of and what my boundaries were. I learned to be grateful for everything that I couldn’t do that I had to relearn. It made me realise what I truly had to be thankful for.
My life with MS has taught me to be a better human being. Thank you for helping me on my journey.
Your support means families in our community who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
