What Is MND/ALS ???
Help And Support In One Place
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Motor Neurone Disease (MND) also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure.
You’ve still got lots more to learn. But before you do, we’d like to ask for your help. Because wider awareness about ALS is great, but what we really need is money.
