50km

Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

When I was diagnosed with MS in 2010 I remembered reading or hearing somewhere that most people with MS will be reliant on a wheelchair within 10 years of diagnosis. At the time I was pretty overwhelmed by the information that I was given from doctors or that I found online or in books.  I can't remember a lot of it, and looking back a lot of it wasn't reliable, but the wheelchair "fact" stuck in my mind. Over the last decade, my MS has luckily progressed slowly and I am still as mobile as I ever was!

Although luck has played a big part - nobody knows how their MS will progress - the medicines and therapies available to me is vital in my Living Well with MS. MS research is so important in making sure we all have the best chance of living with this disease. 

I'm taking part in The May 50k to raise funds and awareness about multiple sclerosis here in Ireland and across the global MS community.
