"Hi, I’m Jeff Ibbotson and I’m an MSWA Customer living with a rare neurological condition known as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP).”
“We still don’t know how CIDP will affect me long term, which is stressful, but I try and remain positive and optimistic about my future.”
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare neurological condition of the peripheral nervous system involving gradual weakness and loss of sensation, predominately in the arms and legs. It currently has no known cause or cure.
Jeff Ibbotson’s life with CIDP began in 2014, at the age of 30. At the time, Jeff was a competitive surf lifesaver, married with a young family and volunteered at his local Police and Community Youth Centre. He was also running his own business as a locksmith.
