Your support makes a world of difference to people relying on our free services to manage their musculoskeletal health and well-being.
Because of the generosity of people like you we can continue to meet the needs of people like Sue who access our free services looking for answers and support.
Sue is one of the 7 million Australians living with a musculoskeletal condition that includes conditions like osteoarthritis, back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia. With 1 in 3 people experiencing conditions like these most of us will know someone like Sue who turns to Musculoskeletal Australia for help in finding answers.
“I have found the MSK newsletter, website and webinars helpful for advice on living with my condition. It has been very positive for me to know that I am not alone, that my condition is real, and that support is there when I need it. I appreciate that you can access information at your own pace and with privacy.”
It is only with your generosity that we can empower people like Sue to take control of their condition through self-care and to live the best lives they can.
We are here to help but we are facing a rapidly growing demand for our services as the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions increases.
“The pain varies from a hot needle in your joints to a dispiriting ache that will not go. My condition increased the time it took me to complete my University studies and limited my capacity to work fulltime and consequently my career path.
For many years, I have needed to rest most afternoons. I could hide it when my children were little and at school, but it became impossible to hide with time – I have found this difficult and, at times, embarrassing. And my condition makes it difficult for me to plan anything in advance as I’m not confident I’ll be well enough to attend. My head is willing and active but my body is not.”
Please give today to ensure more people, like Sue, can access our free support services.
