I was diagnosed on September 11, 2003, with relapsing-remitting MS. I have had various immuno-modulating therapies since diagnosis. I have one son (now a teenager!), am married and live in Canberra.
I was a founding member of a group called Foundation 5 Million (F5m) the aim of which was to raise $5m for MS research. F5m was set up under the auspices of MSRA. We ended up raising over $8m for MS research (and became F5m+), through all sorts of events - balls, dinners, trivia nights, BBQs, garage sales etc. With the success of the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign, we decided as a group that we should dissolve F5m and direct our efforts to Kiss Goodbye events
