Support Motor Neurone Disease Association
Please support our chosen charity, Motor Neurone Disease Association. This illness is very close to our hearts and we would like to raise as much as possible to help people suffering from this disease. This doesn't just help people that are affected but also helps friends and families who are suffering from any bereavement, mental health and care advice.
What is Motor Neurone Disease?
With MND, messages from the motor neurones gradually stop reaching the muscles. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Some people also experience changes to their thinking and behaviour. However, MND affects everyone differently. Not all symptoms will affect everyone, or in the same order. Symptoms also progress at varying speeds, which makes the course of the disease difficult to predict.
MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. Although the disease will progress, symptoms can be managed to help achieve the best possible quality of life.
There is a 1 in 300 risk of getting MND across a lifetime. It can affect adults of any age, but is more likely to affect people over 50.
MND affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. As this is not a common disease, general health and social care professionals may not see many cases of MND. This means it is important to seek out specialists who have appropriate experience in its treatment and care – usually with referral to neurological services.
Who are MND Association?
The Motor Neurone Disease Association funds and promotes global research into MND and provides support to people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. You can find more information at www.mndassociation.org
How can you help?
For every MND candle that is purchased from Scent Selection all the profits will be donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Every pound raised helps to create awareness, fund research and help people living with MND. Together we can help to find a cure for this illness and help save many lives in the future.
For anyone that purchases these candles, I would personally like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping such a terrific cause.
