Why we need your help
So that no one has to face multiple sclerosis alone.
Your support provides information, advice, and support to meet the challenges of multiple sclerosis. For every Aussie with this disease, you can help us:
- Minimise the impact of multiple sclerosis. Practical help is here, including referral information, employment support, individual needs assessments, education, connecting with others, living arrangements, even advocacy. So that people with multiple sclerosis, their families, and their carers have the best life outcomes.
- Empower people to live well. Living well with multiple sclerosis is possible. From everyday advice, to better management of symptoms, talking to nurses, OTs and Physiotherapists, and online education tools such as our Eat Well Live Well nutrition guide, there are options and solutions.
- Reach the newly diagnosed. The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can be difficult to accept. But from the first day someone is diagnosed and every day after that, the MS organisation is here with services and support.
- Help people navigate the health and disability sectors to get the vital services they need. It can be confusing and exhausting coping with the myriad of services when a MS diagnosis is made. Having experts to help navigate the system can relieve the stress and burden. As a registered NDIS provider, we have a wide range of support services for responding to the National Disability Insurance Scheme with smart solutions. This is how people with MS get the most out of NDIS and achieve their goals.
With a gift in your Will, you will minimise the impact of multiple sclerosis for generations to come. You can make the provision of vital support and services for people living with multiple sclerosis part of your personal and lasting legacy.
There are more than 25,000 Aussies living with multiple sclerosis like Scott. He couldn’t get out of bed. He couldn’t get himself dressed. He couldn’t work. We want everyone living with this chronic disease to get the support they need to live the best life they can.
Having previously suffered from an onset of double vision, a specialist would eventually diagnose Jana with multiple sclerosis. Jana’s symptoms subsided, but unfortunately a relapse later down the track severely hindered her ability to walk unaided.
Deciding that she didn’t want to rely on a scooter for the rest of her life, Jana sought help from MS. Through consistent physiotherapy and support at our Studdy MS Centre, Jana was able to return to using her walking frame – met with applause from our MS team members!
With the goal of using only a walking stick, Jana is continuing to strengthen her muscles and using the services provided by MS thanks to donations and fundraising.
Your donations enable people affected by multiple sclerosis to do all the everyday things we take for granted.
