World Map 20th July 2012.

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.

MNDA is a charity that is very close to my heart since my best friends mum, and another best friends late dad, were both diagnosed. Since their diagnosis’ a friend and I have raised in excess of £2000 for the charity, including giving my friends mother the opportunity to go to Lourdes. But I strive to do all I can to get the charity the publicity it deserves. I am also in the process of training for a half marathon and a 50 mile cycle ride to raise more funds and more awareness of the charity.

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.
