For the month of December we will be supporting a research unit of the Westmead Medical Research Foundation http://www.wmrf.org.au/wmrf-news/. The particular unit we are supporting is one headed by A/Prof. Steve Vucic http://www.specialistservices.com.au/doctors-1/dr-steve-vucic who is undertaking specific research into Motor Neurone Disease as well as other brain related diseases.
Motor neurone disease (MND) is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells - neurones - controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow; undergo degeneration and die.
Motor neurone disease occurs at similar rates in most countries of the world. It is estimated that there are presently around 400,000 people worldwide diagnosed with MND and about 2000 people with MND in Australia.
Besides Marg, a friend of mine, Neale Daniher the former AFL footballer is a well known sufferer of MND. Let’s help the researchers find a cure to this horrific disease to help Margie, Neale and hundreds of other sufferers.
