About MND

MND is a rapidly progressing terminal neurological illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. This causes muscle weakness and wasting.

  • Symptoms may include losing the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided.
  • Average life expectancy is just 20 months after diagnosis.
  • There are over 400 people in Scotland currently living with MND.
  • On average over 200 new cases of MND are diagnosed each year.
