Today I added my support to the fight against Motor Neurone Disease (MND)
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressing terminal neurological condition which affects the signals from your brain reaching muscles, causing muscle weakness and wasting. It can affect the ability to eat, sleep, walk, talk and breathe unaided. Average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 14 months and it is not yet known what causes it. There is no effective treatment or cure.
Funding MND research is a key priority for MND Scotland who have announced an additional £450,000 in to research projects and are highlighting what could be achieved with more investment in to MND research.
MND has affected people across Inverclyde. MND Scotland provides care and support to people affected by the illness alongside cutting edge research to try and find a cure.
Scotland is fast becoming one of the go to places to conduct MND research and MND Scotland’s Awareness Week campaign aims to raise £15,000 to invest in to further research projects.
I am pleased to support MND Scotland and their Awareness Week goal of raising more money to invest in this critical research.
