Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressing terminal illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. This may cause someone to lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided. There is currently no cure or effective treatment for MND and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 20 months.
*data from the Scottish MND Register 2015 and 2016.
MND Scotland is the leading charity in Scotland providing care and support to people affected by Motor Neurone Disease, as well as funding vital research into finding a cure.
We campaign on behalf of people affected by MND, and raise awareness of the disease, to ensure their voice is heard.
