TRIVIA NIGHT!!

Games, silent auction and prizes to be won!

7:00pm for a 7:30 start

Hellenic Club Woden

Help us raise money to send our dear friend and family member to Russia to receive HSCT treatment for Multiple Sclerosis.

We are hosting a trivia night to raise funds to pay for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatment for our beloved Aunt and friend Mary P.

JOIN US FOR A NIGHT OF FUN & LAUGHS!

Mary has been approved for Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) treatment in Russia in February 2018 and we want to do all we can to get her there.

What is HSCT?
HSCT is the only existing scientifically proven treatment, currently available that completely halts disease progression of MS. HSCT treatment is not available in Australia.

What is MS?
MS is a debilitating disease, which affects the central nervous system. The disease disrupts and blocks nerve signals causes a variety of symptoms, depending on which areas of the brain and spinal cord are affected. Symptoms may include: Loss of coordination/clumsiness, speech difficulties, hand shaking/tremor, extreme fatigue, sight impairments, memory lapses, vertigo, weakness, impaired sensations.

What we’ll be funding
Stem cell treatment in Russia is not covered by the public health system in Australia and therefore the costs fall onto the patient. Funds raised will go towards:
1. Medical costs: Stem cell treatment costs approx. $50,000USD
2. Flights for Mary and her carer from Canberra to Moscow. Business class will be required on the flight home to minimise the risk of infection.
3. International Health Insurance & Visas
4. Accommodation: The procedure takes an overall 21 days to complete from the day of arrival. This includes the pre-operation check-up, as well the post-operation check-up.
