We are thrilled to announce that two-time MotoGP World Champion and motorcycle racing legend Casey Stoner has joined Emerge Australia as our Ambassador to help raise funds and awareness for our new Help Cure ME campaign!

The campaign will support the newly established Australian Centre for Collaborative Research, the fifth international research centre in the Open Medicine Foundation network.

Casey, who publicly announced his diagnosis with ME/CFS in December 2019, truly understands the impact of this condition. It has affected his ability to enjoy his passions and makes life incredibly challenging for him and his young family.

“It’s extremely difficult for people on the outside that haven’t had it to understand how debilitating it is,” he says. “You feel like you’ve got brick shoes that you’re dragging around – your legs, your muscles, nothing works. 

“We all want to find a better diagnosis, treatment regime, and eventually a cure. Seeing world-class research being conducted here in Australia as part of a global research effort is very encouraging for the whole ME/CFS community.”
