ABOUT

THE MND TEE HAS BEEN LOVINGLY CREATED AS A WAY OF HELPING FIGHT BACK AGAINST MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE.
 
MND IS A FATAL, RAPIDLY PROGRESSING DISEASE THAT AFFECTS THE BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD. IT ATTACKS THE NERVES THAT CONTROL MOVEMENT SO MUSCLES EVENTUALLY WEAKEN. MND CAN AFFECT EVERY INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENTLY AND SYMPTOMS CAN PROGRESS AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS. THIS DISEASE IS LIFE SHORTENING AND THE EFFECTS CAN BE DEVASTATING. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO CURE FOR MND. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MND ITSELF AND THE SYMPTOMS, OR IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEEK ADVICE THERE IS USEFUL INFORMATION ON THE MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE ASSOCIATION WEBSITE. http://www.mndassociation.org
 
AFTER LOSING MY BELOVED DAD TO MND AND CARING FOR HIM WHILST HE WAS ILL, IT FEELS ENTIRELY INSTILLED WITHIN ME TO HELP OTHERS IN THE SAME SITUATION AND TO TRY AND MAKE A CHANGE IN THE WORLD OF MND, MY MISSION IS THAT I WANT TO HELP SPREAD MASS AWARENESS OF MND, HELP FUND RESEARCH AND HELP SUPPORT PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY.
 
A LITTLE NOTE ON OUR LOGO
 
MND CAN AFFECT THE WAY WE COMMUNICATE, AND THE FIRST THING MY DAD LOST DURING HIS ILLNESS WAS HIS SPEECH. THROUGHOUT HIS MND BATTLE HE ALWAYS MANAGED TO USE ONE THUMB FOR A THUMBS UP! EVEN ON THE DARKEST DAYS, THIS ALWAYS PUT A SMILE ON OUR FACES AND CREATED A CONNECTION. IT WAS FASCINATING TO LEARN THAT THE SYMBOL BECAME SIGNIFICANT TO THE MND ASSOCIATION WHEN ACTOR DAVID NIVEN GAVE THE THUMBS UP AS HIS LAST GESTURE BEFORE HE DIED IN 1983. IT REMAINS A SYMBOL OF HOPE FOR US ALL.
