Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month June 2018

 

Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month takes place each June and its purpose is to help raise awareness of this disease.


The event is organised by the Motor Neurone Disease Association.  The group was formed in 1979 by volunteers who wanted to offer support and advice to those affected by the illness.

 Now with over 3000 volunteers the association is stronger than ever and here to help anyone affected by the condition.  And with Eddie Reymayne’s success in winning the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, which he dedicated to “all of the people around the world battling motor neurone disease” it can only help to raise awareness.

 Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive disease which attacks motor neurones in the body.   Eventually this leads to wasting of the muscles, which makes it harder and harder to move limbs and causes difficulty with swallowing and breathing.

 There are lots of ways to get involved during the month to help raise money to support people suffering from this awful condition.  You can simply donate, become a member of the group to show your support, or you can take part in fundraising events.
