"Most people in the committee are connected to people with MND, so that's an important reason why we all get along --"Let's get involved in this business together," she said .""It's clear that MND doesn't have a cure, so any money we can raise will help to find a cure."We want to raise money around $30,000.It would be great to get $30,000 from the slides.
People with MND gradually lose their ability to walk, speak, feed themselves, swallow and finally breathe.This disease can affect anyone, there is no effective treatment, and there is no known cure.In Australia, at least two people are diagnosed each day and two die from the disease.
