Meet Sommer

Hi, I’m Sommer! I’d been having headaches and speech difficulties for a little while, but it wasn’t until I was having some trouble writing and lost movement on one side, that my doctors diagnosed me with MS.

If you want to know a bit more about me, and learn the background of the MS Xplained story, stay tuned and we will add a video here shortly!




A wide community of people have contributed to the development of
MS Xplained. The starting point being the story of Sommer, as well those of people who participated in our focus group.

Medical experts, relevant medical bodies and medical institutions were all involved to create reliable and accurate information you can depend on.


Medicine X would like to thank their sponsor Sanofi Genzyme and partners MS Australia and MS Research Australia for their collaboration on MS Xplained.

About Us

Working as a medical doctor, I realised that far too many people are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions, and their treatments. The language that doctors use, and what every day people understand can be two totally different things.

We believe everyone should feel informed and empowered, so they can engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions. That’s why Medicine X isn’t just another boring and complicated fact sheet – we explain medical issues through stories based on real people! It’s relatable, simple, and gives you the information you need!

We hope this helps you in your journey!
