What is MND?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones.

Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

The effects of MND can vary enormously from person to person, from presenting symptoms, the rate and pattern of the disease progression to the length of survival time after diagnosis.
