Help raise funds
NINE months ago Jessica Hicks didn’t know multiple sclerosis (MS) existed, let alone that she had it.
Since then, Jessica has acted as a human pin cushion, going through countless injections, a lumbar puncture and been examined by specialists and professors in Brisbane.
Now, her mother, Sherry Dean-Hicks, is trying to get the word out there about what MS is, and to do a bit of fundraising for the research of the disease.
To do that, she is hosting a Family Fun Day tomorrow in Market Square and incorporating Jessica’s love of horses by having sulky rides.
“I just am hoping the weather holds out,” she said.
The Family Fun Day will start at noon and there will be a mechanical bull, a jumping castle and country music, among a whole host of attractions.
