Mum tells of her ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis

TIGHT-KNIT: Cathy Marais with her husband Jason and children Kane and Sienna, who are supporting her in her plight.

CATHY Marais lives here in Gladstone with her husband Jason and her two children, Sienna, 9, and Kane, 5. The family was given the shocking news in January this year that Cathy was suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS).

This is a chronic, progressive disease of the nervous system. There is no known cause and no cure. Mrs. MaraIs says: "Everybody suffers MS differently. No person with MS is the same.

"My experience has not been pleasant and has affected my family greatly since my diagnosis. "You lose control of your own body and normal activities in life become a huge effort.

"Since January this year I have had random numbness in my arms and legs.

"Some days I have struggled to walk or use my fingers.

"I have had severe pain in my eye and body, spasticity in my legs, the feeling of ants crawling under my skin and burning and tingling pain on my face and body.

"I have had tremors (uncontrollable shaking) at night. I have suffered MS fatigue and constant chronic pain.

"I have become very reliant on friends and strangers helping me and my children daily."

There are long waiting lists for HOST (stem cell transplant) centres around the world. Pueblo (Mexico) has accepted her application with admission in April 2016.

The cost is $A70,000. She desperately needs the community's help to get there. She is doing this for her children. Please support her.

Tickets are now on sale in a raffle draw to win a new Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883. Tickets are $100 and limited to 300 tickets.

They can be purchased from Cathyfight MSmarais via Facebook, Harbour City Harley-Davidson and Gladstone St John the Baptist Primary School.
