Support our appeal

Spring Appeal 2022



When Buffy’s son Sam was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis (JIA) shortly after his 13th birthday, it felt like the bottom had dropped out of her world. Everything she thought the future would hold for Sam was suddenly in doubt.

Feeling lost and overwhelmed, Buffy found the help she needed to care for her son at Musculoskeletal Australia.

“The impact on the whole family was enormous and many changes had to be made. I needed to learn more about JIA and how I could help care for my son. After a lot of searching, I came across Musculoskeletal Australia.

I called the MSK Help Line and one of their wonderful nurses listened to my fears and was able to give me the information I needed. It was so reassuring to be able to speak to someone who understood what I was going through.”

Each month hundreds of people, just like Buffy reach out to Musculoskeletal Australia in their time of need. 


With your support, we can continue to provide people with the help and support they need to understand and manage musculoskeletal conditions, just like we did for Buffy. 

Buffy now shares with others about the vital role Musculoskeletal Australia played in her family’s life. 

“I wanted to be able to help other people who were searching for answers about their musculoskeletal condition, so I began work as a volunteer on the MSK Help Line. I now work part-time with Musculoskeletal Australia and helped set up the MSK Kids program. It feels great to know that I’m able to help other families.

It really is a fantastic organization – I don’t know how I would have managed without their support.”

As the demand for our services is ever-growing, there is a need for us to continue to provide free information resources and support to those people who need us the most.

Thank you for your support in making a difference to people’s lives.
