About the Charity – Care, Cure, Support
Our simple purpose is to make a beneficial difference to others.
Our Long term aim is to contribute to a world where MND is no longer 100% terminal, by helping to uncover what causes MND and eventually finding a cure. In the Short term we will provide funding to improve the care and support for people living with MND and their families whilst contributing to research to find a cure .
All administration expenses and administration staff are underwritten by the Whiteman Family, ensuring 100% of all money raised goes directly to the fund. An example of this is the Drive for MND, where our administration team, in conjunction with the organising committee of volunteers, carried out every task and function required to promote, conduct and conclude the event at nil expense to the funds raised by the event participants.
What is MND?
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones (nerves). It is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, swallow and breathe undergo degeneration and die. The cause of MND is unknown and not all symptoms of the disease necessarily happen to everyone with the patterns of weakness varying from person to person.
MND is diagnosed in people of all ages of men and women. Currently there is no cure, however symptoms can be managed to help the person achieve the best possible quality of life.
