MS is a devastating condition that can affect every aspect of a person’s life – from our little pleasures through to our mobility and quality of life. Across the country we are seeing the threat of MS growing by the year. In the past five years alone, the number of Australians living with MS has increased by 30%, while the number of MS nurses has declined.

You can help people like Alice live happier, healthier lives.
When Alice first started experiencing symptoms of MS, she was misdiagnosed with postpartum depression; her children were taken away from her.
Heartbroken and on the brink of despair, Alice reached out to Bridie, a nurse at MS Plus who has dedicated the past ten years of her life to empowering people to better understand their condition, manage their health, and achieve their goals.
With the tailored and expert support of MS nurses beside her, Alice could finally begin to rebuild her life. She has since been reunited with her children and now describes her MS nurses as “like family”.
But Alice also knows that she is one of the lucky ones. Right now, an estimated 33,300 Australians are living with MS, but there are just 90 MS nurses across the entire country.
As rates of MS increase, the need for MS nurses is becoming more urgent and more widespread.
Please donate today to help fund our MS nurse program, so every Australian living with MS can continue to access the support they need to live life on their terms.
