JESS'S STORY

Jess first began showing symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) at the age of 28, following the birth of her second child. It took several months, and six GPs, before she was diagnosed and referred to a neurologist.

Feeling isolated and scared about her diagnosis and how it would impact her young family’s future, Jess was looking for information and support.

“The first thing my neurologist told me to do was contact the MS Society, because they would help me understand what having MS would mean for me.”

“When you’re diagnosed with MS, you lose control of your body, and you also lose control of your future; The MS Society helped me to understand that my life wasn’t over just because I had MS. They gave me reassurance, comfort, a support network, and a place to feel welcomed and heard.”

The MS Game Changer Lottery is raising important funds to support research into the cause and cure of Multiple Sclerosis, for people living in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

“If I was to wake up tomorrow and hear that there was a cure, or an incredible treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, it would absolutely change my world. So much is taken from us, but funding for research helps give hope to people living with MS.”

“Thank you so much for buying a ticket in the MS Game Changer Lottery – people with MS need your support…It’s changing our lives.”
