MND Awareness Week

June 18, 2023

This week we want to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease, a condition that affects the nerves carrying signals between your brain and body. Currently, there is no cure for MND and it is life shortening.

June 21st is MND/ALS Global Awareness Day – also sharing this with National Bowel Cancer Awareness Day.

Globally more than 400,000 people are currently living with MND, keeping in mind this disease impacts many more through family and friends supporting someone who is affected.
