2018 Winner

Helen McCarl

Helen recently retired as an MS nurse at the MS Society after 15 years. Over that time, she has made a positive difference in the lives of many hundreds of people with MS during the early stages of diagnosis and throughout their MS journey. Helen has held a number of voluntary roles through MS Nurses Australia and other committees, and spent much of her career educating others around MS through mentoring, presentations and representing the MS Society in the media.

We thank Helen for her selfless and passionate service to people with MS and their families.
