Hope for the future
Like any young couple, Charlie and Jenny were hopeful for their future; they entered the workforce and loved being a part of their working community and building a life together. Jenny had different symptoms throughout this time but continued work. However in 2013 due to ongoing and declining and debilitating symptoms Jenny had to retire. At this time Charlie became Jenny’s full-time carer.
The ultimate power couple
Together Charlie and Jenny remain the ultimate team – Charlie affectionately calls Jenny ‘little Ferret” and shares that Jenny is the whole reason he gets up every day. They dedicate their time to help find a cure for MS and are determined to help make a difference until a cure is found and to assist MS Queensland, that are like part of the family to the Bennetts.
Volunteering their time spreading awareness and participating in various MS related events and activities Charlie and Jenny’s focus event is the Brissie to the Bay and have helped raise almost $100,000 for “Team Jenny” the leading fundraising team for the Brissie to the Bay.
