Give the gift of hope this Christmas

MSWA Client, Lilia Burton, with her husband and three children

Your kind donation this Christmas will help researchers turn their discoveries into new personalised and more effective treatments, helping people like Bronwyn.

You can empower researchers in their work towards finding causes and cures for thousands of Western Australians living with neurological conditions, and those not yet diagnosed.

Donate now and you will fund the researchers who strive to better understand neurological conditions like MS, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease. Together, we can work toward the cures we hope for.

Thanks to donations like yours, we were able to contribute $5 million to neurological research in the 2022-23 financial year.

A gift today will help fund cutting-edge neuro research in WA

“Research for me is about hope. I hope tomorrow will be better than today, for my daughters’ sakes as much as mine.”

Your gift will give people with a neurological condition, like Bronwyn, the chance to live life to its fullest.

With your support, researchers can fast-track their discoveries to help people with a condition, like MS or stroke, maintain as much independence as possible and live their best lives.

Your donation could help fund cutting-edge technology like the Mindpod

The first of its kind in Australia, Mindpod is a ground-breaking device being trialled by Edith Cowan University, and proudly funded by MSWA.

Mindpod allows users to feel as if they are playing a game – they take the role of a dolphin and ‘swim’ around using their arms. The aim is to keep away from a virtual shark! Watch the video to see how it works.

This game has been proven to be an effective form of therapy. The continual movement enables participants to strengthen their upper limbs and improve nerve function. It is brilliant to see a new and engaging therapy making a real difference.

Will you help us?

Your tax deductible donation will make a difference.

MSWA is proud to be Australia’s biggest contributor to neurological research, but we couldn’t do it without your generosity.

By donating you enable MSWA to be there when people like Lilia need us. Together we’re helping her enjoy life with her three young children. Together we’re looking for better therapies, pioneering treatments and hopefully, one day, a cure.

A donation toward our research will assist us supporting individuals, their families and future generations living with a neurological condition.

We would like to thank you in advance for your kind help.
