Following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis, something distressing happened to Mark Crockett. The world that had always seemed so beautiful and exciting to him began to seem colourless and dull.
Things that had once brought him joy began to feel pointless. Even spending time with his beloved wife and daughter no longer brought him any pleasure. It was as if his very soul had died, leaving an empty void inside him that not even the love of his family could fill.
Thank goodness that in his darkest moment Mark managed to find the strength to call MS Connect—the unique, donor funded service that offers a direct line to the practical and emotional care that people like Mark urgently need to escape despair.
Our MS Connect team helped Mark understand that depression is actually a common symptom of multiple sclerosis. And over the months that followed, they provided him with the friendship, care and support he needed to find his way back into the light.
MS Connect depends entirely on donations to help thousands of Australians and their families live well with multiple sclerosis each year. Will you help us raise $280,665 we need in order to ensure people like Mark living with depression this Christmas do not have to endure this devastating symptom alone?
