Motor Neurone Disease Association
Please jump for the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association and help people living with MND, their families and carers and help us to find a cure to end MND. MND is a rapidly progressive, fatal disease that can affect any adult at any time. The cause of MND is unknown and there is no known cure.
MNDA is the only national registered charity that helps people living with MND, their families and carers. MND kills five people every day in the UK.
MND is the name given to a group of related diseases affecting the motor neurones (nerve cells) in the brain and spinal cord. As the motor neurones gradually die, the muscles stop working.
Life expectancy for most people with MND is just two to five years, and around half will die within 14 months of diagnosis. MND leaves people unable to walk, talk or feed themselves, but the intellect and the senses usually remain unaffected. People with MND can still think and feel, but their muscles refuse to work.
