Raising Awareness of Motor Neurone Disease

I have decided to create a blog to try and raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease and the Charity MNDA.

– Around 5000 people at any one time have Motor Neurone Diease in the UK.

– It is a degenerative disease causing muscle wastage

– Life expectancy after being diagnosed can be between 2-5 years (dependant on the individual)

– There is currently no cure

– There is currently no Government funding

– It kills one person every 8 hours in the UK, which is more than the number of people who die from AIDS.

-Each case of MND is unique

-Stephen Hawking has MND and has had an exceptional survival of over 30 years
