World Stroke Day - 29 October

Help other stroke survivors like Tracey

MSWA proudly supports our Customers to live well after having a stroke.

After struggling for a year after having a stroke at the age of 52, Tracey realised she needed more help, especially if she wanted to redevelop her short-term memory, manage her fatigue, strengthen her cognitive skills, and improve her mobility.

Reaching out to MSWA and learning about their services got her excited about her future. Tracey now enjoys tailored MSWA services and support including counselling at home, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, and social welfare at MSWA’s Services Centre in Wilson.

Your donation helps us invest in the services Tracey receives, equipment, accommodation, outreach, respite care and research to ensure people like Tracey get the support they need.

“Life can be challenging, but when you come across something that is hard, you push through. It's always easier with the help of others. Never say never, especially if you've had a stroke.”

Donate to research

MSWA is the largest contributor to MS research in Australia

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, MSWA has invested a record $3 million in the 2018-19 financial year.

Lucinda black

Your donations allow researchers like Dr Lucinda Black (pictured) to better understand the factors that contribute to an MS diagnosis, and then develop recommendations and potential treatments — findings we hope will have long-lasting impacts for people living with MS worldwide.

To date there’s very little evidence about diet and the risk of MS and disease progression. Dr Lucinda Black, Senior Research Fellow at Curtin University is investigating if a change of diet can help reduce symptoms and/or improve health outcomes.

"Many people who are diagnosed with MS would benefit from having nutritional advice, specific to living with MS. The work that I’ve been doing has been contributing to that.”

“What we’ve found so far, is that a healthy diet pattern is associated with a reduced risk of MS. MSWA has been fundamental in supporting my research for the past three years. Without it, I wouldn’t have been able to focus my research in this area.”

Donate now and help MSWA to continue this important work and give hope to people like Matt Nichols.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductable.
