June is Motor Neurone Disease (MND) awareness month.
It is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves.
It causes weakness that gets worse over time.
There’s no cure for MND, but there are treatments to help reduce the impact it has on a person’s daily life. Some people live with the condition for many years.
MND can significantly shorten life expectancy and, unfortunately, eventually leads to death.
