Willeke-Maya

Patient Leader

Hi! MS knocked on my door in 2005, a mere 2.5 years after moving to Ireland. Advocating for change since! It was awkward, puzzling and easier said than done. In 2011 I began writing and advocating.. 'Ireland, Multiple Sclerosis & Me' is a mix of personal experiences and general information to fill the gap left by websites crowded with medical jargon. It eventually led to being a contributor to the MS Ireland blog as well as the Novartis 'Living Like You' MS blog to name a few. Sharing knowledge and being part of the solution instead of the problem drives me forward. As a spokesperson for the Irish MS Society, I actively attend conferences in support of improved disability services.
