Diagnosed 2,5 years after moving to
Ireland, Willeke engages in advocacy efforts in support of improved
disability and neurological services in Ireland, while also hoping to
change people's perception about life with an invisible illness like MS.
By highlighting difficult issues that
come with the diagnosis of a chronic, neurodegenerative illness, she
hopes her tenacity can bring dignity to people most in need of a modern,
inclusive health care system and society, which looks after every
aspect of life.
Connect with her on Twitter and Facebook. Also check her new blog Kick-Ass Ireland. For further information, please do get in touch in regards to MS advocacy in Ireland and abroad: firstname.lastname@example.org.
