Braydon's Story

Braydon’s story begins when he was only 21 years old.

I started experiencing symptoms, and these slowly got worse, with numbness starting in my left hand which started spreading over the next month.”

Thinking it was just fatigue and stress levels, he didn’t think anything else of it. His partner Glenda started noticing that Braydon didn’t have any feeling in the left side of his body.

I couldn’t even hold a knife and fork properly. It was at this stage I went to see a GP

It was confirmed that Braydon had MS.

MS Queensland have been able to support Braydon on his journey.

“The support workers and counsellors have been amazing. Having a regular person to talk to once a week, just to check in. Having someone just that little bit removed from your day-to-day life has been fantastic.”

After his diagnosis, Braydon was encouraged to take part in the MS Moonlight Walk. The event enables MS Queensland to provide critical programs and support for the increasing number of people diagnosed with MS.

This event is so important to me, because I want to support other people living with MS. People just like me.”

Now, Braydon continues to do all the same things as before his diagnosis.

Your support of the MS Limited Edition Art Union helps MS Queensland to deliver a number of vital services to the almost 4,000 people in Queensland, living with MS and other neurological conditions. These services include specialist disability accommodation, employment support, our NeuroAssist information line, NDIS access and planning support, specialist nursing services and wellness programs.

Your funds also power research into better treatments, and with your support, our hope is that one day there will be a cure for MS.

Thank you for ensuring that no one faces their journey alone.
