Motor Neurone Disease (MND)

Motor Neurone Disease (MND)

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a baffling disease – You either learn to live with it or die from it!

Why is this important?

MND refers to a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurones, the cells that control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. Many forms of motor neurone disease exist with unknown causes presenting as a complex interplay of genes and the environment.
