More than 2.5 million people are living with multiple sclerosis globally. It is one of the most common disabling neurological conditions amongst young adults in the northern hemisphere. World MS Day was launched three years ago to raise awareness about MS and to strengthen the network of people living with MS across the world.

This year, the theme for World MS Day is 'Living with MS' and we hope to:
* raise awareness of the different faces of MS
* share the many challenges that people with MS face daily; and
* advocate for the changes that help people with MS to live fulfilling lives after diagnosis.

Please watch and share this video with your friends and family to see how Louisa lives positively with MS with her family on the Gold Coast in Queensland. When asked about her support network she said:

"My Mum and Dad have been an unbelievable support to me throughout my life and in particular when I was diagnosed with MS. I am the strong and optimistic woman that I am today due to their guidance and the knowledge that they will always, no matter what....be there for me through everything and will believe in me and support all of my ambitions. I feel blessed every single day and so incredibly grateful to have such loving and supportive parents...I thank them from my heart. Along with the help of my wonderful husband...my soul mate, Ben, my gorgeous son, Archie and my parents, I am excited about my future and look forward to reaching all my goals, feel extremely lucky to have all that I have and live each day happily and positively. I have MS but MS doesn't have me!"

We thank Louisa and her family, Pete Ireland and The Production Room for volunteering their expertise, resources and time to produce this heartfelt video for MS Queensland.
