What is MND?

MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease, the name of a group of diseases that destroy the nerve cells (neurones) that control your muscles. The most common type of MND is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS.

With no nerves to activate them, the muscles you use to walk, talk, hug, hold, speak, and eat gradually stop working. Eventually, you're locked in a body that can no longer move.

MND can affect anyone. In New Zealand, two people are diagnosed with MND each week. MND is life-shortening. Life expectancy varies, most people live 2-5 years after symptoms begin. The cause is not yet known. There is very little treatment and no known cure.

With your help, we can provide the best quality support to those living with motor neurone disease.
