"Having loving, understanding people like Amy to provide both emotional and practical support gives hope that I can cope with any curveballs Multiple Sclerosis throws at me."
"I feel fortunate to have support from my family and friends. In particular, I feel overwhelming gratitude towards my sister-in-law, Amy, who ran a full marathon in Queenstown to raise awareness and over $2700 for Multiple Sclerosis. This took intense training, injury rehabilitation and immense determination during the race when she was also unwell. To complete the race took pure grit. Cheering her on was a privilege – and to my pleasant surprise, it was reported to be the highlight of my young children’s trip to beautiful Queenstown. I appreciate all the generous donations from my extended circle of friends and their colleagues. This funding will certainly help toward further Multiple Sclerosis research and community support.
Having loving, understanding people like Amy to provide both emotional and practical support gives hope that I can cope with any curveballs Multiple Sclerosis throws at me. As I know through my clinical psychology research, this connection is the most important element contributing to happiness and life satisfaction.
Thank you to all those caregivers and friends who support us.
We are not alone" Sarah
