About Motor Neurone Disease (MND):
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells - neurones - controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow undergo degeneration and die. MND is an uncompromising disease, indiscriminate and brutal. The cause is unknown and there is no cure.
As the symptoms of MND increase, the level of care needed to remain at home also increase. Families need to adapt to the constantly changing levels of disabilities. They need physical and emotional support. They need community acceptance.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association of Queensland Inc. rely heavily on small grants and community support to enable us to continue providing the following services.
What will the funds be used for?
Donations will be used for the purchase of equipment aides, to support our Regional Advisor service and the production of updated information to support and enhance the lives of families living with MND
