Please understand that MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles refuse to work. It can often leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breath. It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis, MND has no cure.

Knowledge about motor neurone disease is not essential as information and support will be provided by Yorkshire Dales Area Support Coordinator Michelle and supported by existing volunteers at the Yorkshire Dales Branch. We would love to hear from you.
