Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month!

Monday, June 1st, 2015 by morethan

It’s June and Motor Neurone Disease Association is holding a special month of awareness.   More Than Mobility are supporters of this charity here in the UK and the Motor Neurone Disease Association and would like us to help raise awareness of this terrible disease.

MND is a life-changing illness and help is available for everyone, whether you are living with MND or close to someone who has been diagnosed. The association says that between 80 and 95 per cent of people with MND will experience communication problems and with that in mind is working hard to ensure they all have their voices heard. The association says that people with MND find it hard to explain the condition to people, including healthcare professionals.

People with MND say that spreading the word can be a powerful way to keep their voice, when their own might be getting fainter.

Facts about MND are:

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
  • MND affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.
  • Half of people with MND will die within 14 months of diagnoses.
  • There is no cure.
  • For more information go to: www.mndassociation.org

There are lots of ways to get involved during the month including helping to raise money to support people suffering from this condition. You can simply donate, become a member of the group to show your support, or you can take part in fundraising events.

More Than Mobility would like to make sure that the journey through Motor Neurone Disease is as comfortable as possible so we have special offers on mobility products this month including:

Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month

Thursday, June 19th, 2014 by morethan

June is Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Awareness Month.  Over at the Motor Neurone Disesase Association, they see the value in raising awareness of this disease as it enables them to back more crucial research into the causes of MND, to help bring a cure closer.  Their theme is called VOICE; encouraging people to spread the word for MND sufferers when their voice might be getting fainter. MND affects the motor neurones or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting leading most sufferers to become registered disabled.

Here at More Than Mobility we don’t want any disability to stop you from living independently or to disrupt your lifestyle. We therefore provide a wide range of disability and mobility products to suit your specific needs. So do visit our website and take a look at some of our products on offer today!
