Mark Crockett

“Giving Back"

Mark CrockettMark Crockett is a husband, father and friend who previously led a busy life as a train driver.

During 2014, and at the age of forty-five, Mark was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, which affects over 25,000 Australians. Mark experienced symptoms ranging from headaches, vision disturbance and pins and needles and quickly commenced medication  to delay the progression of the disease.  

The journey to acceptance and learning to live well with a diagnosis of MS was rough in the beginning and Mark found himself at a very-very low ebb. He reached out to our MS Connect line and as he says himself “MS Connect provided all the information, direction and positives to keep going!”

Mark now keeps busy enjoying photography, fishing and bike riding and loves being outdoor. In 2017 Mark completed the 82kms of the MS Gong Ride which he credits with changing his life. Mark now provides support as MS Ambassador and volunteers to raise the profile of multiple sclerosis in his local Newcastle community and to ensure that no one has to face MS alone.
