Below is a short film which will give more information about MND and the Cheshire Branch








This film has been produced by an Award Winning Videographer based in Wrexham, Wales

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.

MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order.

Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life.

Between 80 and 95 per cent of people with MND develop speech impairment over the course of their illness

Rally your friends and show support to those with MND: Take part in Silence Speaks, a sponsored silence to raise funds during Awareness Month in June.

Living with voice loss is also about learning to adapt, which is why we’re encouraging you to get creative and find other ways to communicate during Silence Speaks.
