Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.
Since I’ve raised awareness, I’ve been told about lots more cases of the disease and it has affected many more people than I first imagined.
Since starting this blog in February it has been viewed in 31 countries and over two and a half thousand people have viewed the blog. Please keep the awareness spreading, to those who know nothing about the disease, and educate them about this horror in peoples lives.
