"I am a practicing solicitor, who lives with MS. While there are constant reminders of the impacts of this insidious and unpredictable disease, I refuse to let it bet me. While work is important to me, it is vital to manage some time to relax and manage my extreme tiredness. My relaxation is about sharing time with my family including my four adult children, my friends and the art of patchwork. I once would get frustrated with the mistakes on my quilts, as my hands don’t always do what they should, but now I embrace the “mistakes” as artistic expressions. Liam is my son and doing the Brissy to Bay ride and raising money for MS research. Please give generously to his fundraising, as without selfless people like Liam, MS would not have a voice and the vital funds required to improve the lives of people living with MS."
