Rachael Hendry

“When the Tough Get Going"

rachael hendryIn 2002 at 21 years of age, Rachael experienced unexplained blurry vision which was treated and resolved.  Feeling well, she put this medical episode out of her mind – there was way too much life to be lived, for this twenty-one-year old who loved life with a passion!  

Much later during 2006, symptoms of pins and needles appeared, just prior to the happiest day of her life – her wedding – again Rachael was treated and recovered.  

Life moved on with her amazing husband and the gift of two beautiful children.  During 2014 visual issues appeared again and this lovely lady was quickly referred to a neurologist and diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which effects over 25,000 Australians.   

What Rachael did next was fall in a heap, then she got up and educated herself and those she loves about the facts of multiple sclerosis. As a result, the whole family, and in-particular-her children, have a deep understanding about how MS effects the whole family and how they work together to manage MS.

Rachael is a busy mum and works full time in the Travel industry and is fortunate she has a supportive employer who understands the challenges of the “invisible” symptoms of MS. 

The MS Ambassador Program is delighted to welcome MS Ambassador Rachael Hendry to our team. Rachael is keen to share her journey and hopes to help prevent what she felt was a profound sense of the “alone-ness” of an MS diagnosis. Rachael is looking forward to sharing with you her learnings about wellness, the importance of self-time and educating the community so that “no one has to face MS alone”!
