Nerve cells (Neurones) control the muscles that enable us to move around, speak, breathe and swallow. Motor
Neurone Disease (MND) is the name given to a group of diseases in which the neurones fail to work normally
where the muscles gradually weaken and waste. There is no cure for MND and eventually this debilitating disease
will claim the life of the sufferer. Whilst MND is uncommon, unfortunately it is by no means rare with over 1400
people diagnosed with MND in Australia.
Motor Neurone Disease NSW is a registered charitable not-for-profit organisation providing support, care and information to people with all types of MND as well as their families.
