Thanks to you, we’re able to provide vital services, care, and support to Queensland families living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and power MS research into the future.
If you are one of our incredible supporters who have generously donated, fundraised and volunteered – THANK YOU! We don’t take your support for granted.
Sadly, MS diagnoses are increasing with now over 5,500 Queenslanders now living with MS.
75% of those are women and the average age of someone diagnosed is just 30.
Your support, no matter the size, goes a long way in ensuring no one faces MS alone now and in the future!
How you made a difference last year!
Answered over 6,873 calls from people living with MS and their carers, families, and friends who were looking for a friendly ear and needed support and advice.
Specialist Nursing Support
Specialist Nurses held over 2,703 phone and clinic consultations with 738 people living MS and their families to help them manage their pain and medication. This can take someone from uncertain and scared to empowered and in control.
Funding MS Research
Over $867,000 was contributed to MS research projects to ensure one day we can live in a world without MS.
You helped over 100+ people access the NDIS – a complex yet transformational moment for many with neurological conditions
Thank you to those 147 donors who have made the truly generous decision to leave a gift to MS Queensland in their Will.
Thank you to the 320 volunteers whose gifts of time and service make an incredible difference to ensuring no one faces MS alone.
The people you’ve helped…
“Having a friendly voice and person to speak with once a week – just to check in – has been so helpful. My fiancé and I both agree I am happier because of it.”
“Since having MS Queensland’s assistance with my NDIS plan, I’ve been leaps and bounds ahead and through being linked with a skilled occupational therapist, I’ve been able to get all of my modifications and equipment I need installed in my home. The team have made a real effort to help me understand what support I can get access to”
“Without MS Queensland, I honestly would be lost and confused. The information I have received has been invaluable. It’s so comforting to know the team at MS Queensland are right there when we need you.”
We are deeply grateful to you for choosing to continue to support people living with MS and other neurological conditions.
