At the age of 23 I was diagnosed with MS, I knew nothing about it, or what the future for someone with it would be. How could someone like me who had always looked after myself, trained hard at boxing and rugby and was never ill get MS!

To begin with I was in complete denial, never researched it, basically didn’t want to know anything about it because that way it didn’t seem real. The doctors pushed for medication decisions and that’s when I decided I was going to take this on, my last “fight” With help from close family and friends I went against the grain and decided against drug treatment and took to a dairy free diet and alternative treatments, one of which was oxygen treatment at the MS centre. Which I found to be a massive help. I can happily say I have had no relapses in 4 years and I am in good health, hence why I have accepted this amazing challenge.

I was lucky enough to get chosen for a space that became available at the London marathon last minute. I’ve decided to raise money for the MS therapy centre as they have played a part in me being in good health throughout my MS journey and it’s time for me to give back.
