MND is a rapidly progressive, fatal disease. It attacks the motor neurones that send messages from the brain to the muscles, leaving people unable to walk, talk or feed themselves. Around 5,000 people in the UK have MND at any one time. With no cure it kills a third of people within a year of diagnosis.
The MND Association will fund and promote global research to bring about an end to MND. Until then, it will do all that it can to enable everyone with MND to receive the best care, achieve the highest quality of life possible, and die with dignity. With your help - we will do all that we can to support the families and carers of people with MND. Thank you for choosing to support us, it means so much to us and we are truly grateful.
