Rania’s Story

Rania was only 19 when she was diagnosed with MS

Rania already knew the impact of multiple sclerosis (MS) when she was diagnosed, her older sister had been living with MS for the previous seven years. It seemed unimaginable that she would become the second daughter in the family to receive the same life-changing diagnosis.

“I was scared all the time” Rania admits “I’ve had episodes where I’ve lost feeling in my leg; one where I’ve lost the feeling in my arm. Each time my feeling has come back. But you always think: ‘What if next time it doesn’t?’ or ‘What if I get older and it gets worse and I can’t walk, and I end up in a wheelchair?’.”

However, Rania has not let multiple sclerosis stop her from living life to the fullest. In 2011 she won the Monash prize and gained her Bachelor of Professional Communications degree with the highest marks. She now works in digital media for a major bank and has just celebrated her sixth wedding anniversary

The team at Multiple Sclerosis Limited have assisted Rania throughout her journey with multiple sclerosis with services and support to shoulder the burden and enable her to keep doing the things she’s passionate about despite the challenges she faces.

I don’t think there are enough words to describe how much I appreciate the support from the Multiple Sclerosis Limited,” said Rania “I don’t think people realise how much help it can give – just to have someone outside your family to speak to and help is so important – because it can be really, really dark not having that support.

Please think about buying a MS Dream Car Lottery ticket. With your support Multiple Sclerosis Limited will be able to provide vital services and support to thousands of Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
