Giving a little this Easter. Fundraising for children in need

Hi everyone,

The Good Friday appeal and the people that they help resonates with me very well. 


As some of you are aware, at the end of last year my younger sister Ariel came under my care. In late November 2020, Ariel spent three and a half months at the Royal Children’s Hospital for inpatient treatment. Initially when she had her first ‘relapse’ with symptoms such as limping, memory fog and blurred vision, the Neurology team diagnosed her with demyelination changes to the brain and spine.


Following further relapses, Ariel experienced further symptoms. Ariel was unable to move her legs/ walk or use her left hand, control muscles in her body. Ultimately, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).


 


What is Multiple sclerosis?


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). It is considered a disability.


Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There's
no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.


 


There was the uncertainty that she would be able to walk again but with the help of the Good Friday Appeal and the Royal Children’s Hospital, she is remarkably on her feet. I am pleased to advise she is doing really well although we are still attending some outpatient appointments. We are very grateful for everything the RCH has done and want to help raise awareness to both The Good Friday Appeal and MS. I hope one day a cure can be found for the cruel disease.  


 


If you have a moment, I would really appreciate if you can contribute for the good cause as anything will help.



We are very lucky.  Without the Good Friday appeal , a lot of families would be struggling.
