  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord
  • It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles refuse to work. Sensory nerves are not usually affected
  • It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breath
  • It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis
  • It has no cure.

 

The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.
