Story

Welcome to the Mitrofanoff Support Australia fundraising page!

 

Every dollar you donate is tax deductable and assists us to provide information and support to people coping with poor bladder and kidney health, and severe incontinence.

 

Mitrofanoff Support Australia (MSA) provides support and information to people living with chronic bladder dysfunction.  The purpose of MSA is to develop educational resources for patients and clinicians, build a postive social network, and develop information resources for schools and rural health service providers.  MSA works collaboratively with key government health organisations, hospitals, surgeons, nurses and medical supply companies to bring positive change and support for patients.  

 

MSA is a Not-for-Profit registered Australian Charity and is run by a small team of dedicated volunteers committed to making real change for patients, and their families and carers in Australia.  

 

People living with chronic bladder dysfunction often have serious underlying health problems including:

 

  • Rare congential birth conditions: spina bifida, bladder exstrophy, epispadias, neurogenic bladder
  • Paraplegia or spinal cord injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis 
  • Cancer of bowel /bladder/ prostrate
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammatory bladder disease
  • Overactive/ Underactive bladders

 

Did you know?

  • Approximately 316,500 people in Australia experience severe incontinence.
  • The financial impact of incontinence in Australia in 2010 was an estimated $42.9 billion.
  • In 2010 the total productivity loss due to incontinence was $34.1 billion.  This was a consquence of lower employment rates amongst those with incontinence (with the impact on employment greatest for those with severe incontinence). 
  • 21% of the Australian population are impacted by incontinence.    

 

MSA was founded in 2013 by Greg Solomon and his wife Janelle. Janelle and Greg’s daughter was born with the rare condition, Bladder Exstrophy, where her bladder was on the outside of her body at birth. After 9 years of declining kidney function and poor health, their daughter had the Mitrofanoff surgery in Australia in 2012. Visit www.mitrofanoffaustralia.org.au

Mitrofanoff Support Australia Limited

Mitrofanoff Support Australia (MSA) connects patients, and their families, living with urological rare diseases. From birth, children with chronic urological conditions suffer through life threatening infections, months of hospitalisation, invasive tests and major abdominal surgeries. Some have as many as 60 surgeries before they are 10 years old. Constant ill health of a child has devastating long term effects on the whole family. It prevents these children from taking part in many activities, like school camps, that other kids are able to experience. Through MSA's regular social events and camps urology kids and their families meet others like them, making lasting friendships in a fun and safe environment. The MSA OURology Angels are fundraising to help our urology kids live a happy and healthier life, so they can grow into confident and resilient young adults. Thank you for your contribution. Your donation will ease the isolation, stress and trauma associated with long term disease.
