Together we will #CureMND by continuing to fund vital research into MND. You can help us!

Help us continue to take a step closer to a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) by joining our #CureMND campaign. Funding research into MND is vital and with your help we can do more to bring us all a day closer to a cure.

What is MND?

MND is a terminal illness which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. This causes muscle wasting and weakness and can affect someone’s ability to walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe unaided. There is no effective treatment and no cure. The average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 20 months and almost 200 people are diagnosed in Scotland each year.

quote marks

“I can’t begin to explain how it feels to know that your body is betraying you and there’s nothing you can do. MND not only affects the lives of its sufferers but their whole families. A cure needs to be found so that no one from my generation, and future generations, has to endure what I have to go through. The only way we can achieve this is by investing money into finding a cure.”
