“Pride not dented by a diagnosis of MS”
Let me introduce to you the dynamic Hilary Hill a woman who is tertiary qualified and working in the food and nutrition industry who existed in a fast-paced life style living remotely in Sydney, working full time and raising two children almost single handed.
Although, in her own words “my life thus far had been of disgustingly good health” until three years ago Hilary experienced unexplained numbness. Investigations quickly revealed a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis a confronting and “foreign status” to who Hilary honestly “did not know how to have” an Illness of any kind?!”.
Although her pride had not been dented by her diagnosis that effects 23,000 Australians a clever change from living daily “burning the candle at both ends” made the change to a practise a slower paced lifestyle.
In true academic style Hilary researched for the latest information about multiple sclerosis via university websites, Dr Google and our own MS Connect Line – which is the gateway to living well with MS. Hillary and her husband made a successful tree change to the apple isle recently and has since joined an MS support group and looking forward to educating, motivating and advocating on behalf of all Australians living with MS through her new role as an MS Ambassador.
MS Ambassador Hillary is still transitioning her life to a slower pace – it is a work in progress - but Hilary is looking forward to efficiently provide a quick-witted motivating presentation about living a life uncompromised.
