When Alison started seeing Dr Phu Hoang at the Lidcombe MS Plus Wellbeing Centre, she was using a walker to get around.
Sometimes she fell. Her leg was affected by drop foot and hyperextension, and Alison could not use her left arm or hand. Even speaking was a struggle at times. It’s incredible to think she can walk five kilometres now!
Your support for MS Plus Wellbeing Centres means Allison can access expert advice on diet, medication, and physical therapy. In April this year, her hard work paid off. She was able to achieve her dream of walking across the Brooklyn Bridge!
Alison says it feels amazing to be living without visible symptoms again, and she wants to share her message of hope with other people who live with MS.
Thank you for helping make the Wellbeing Centre – and Alison’s dream – a reality.
