Your future gift could give HOPE of a world free from MND. Thank you.
My Dad passed away from MND back in the 90s when I was in my 20s. The MND Association and RAF were very supportive to the rest of the family. - Joanne Downes
I saw first-hand what a devastating disease it is.
'I'm hoping that leaving a gift in my will will help to change this.' - Mandy Wood
My Dad was told he had MND in January 2020, by July 2020 we had lost him - Tracey Horn.
My Wife died from MND and also a former work colleague who left a young family. The MND Association provided advice and help throughout my wife's illness. I hope this will help to find a cure, if not, help others with the illness and provide hope - Trevor.
One day we will be free of this terrible disease
My husband died from MND in 1981 after three years of suffering from this dreadful disease
When renewing my will, I realised the need to avoid inheritance tax
I really hope and pray that a time will come when those words change to 'yes we can cure and treat MND'
I lost my wife, Pauline 'Polly' Lambert, to MND in April 2019, 11 months after diagnosis. I want my gift to help prevent other families from suffering the pain we endured. - Michael Lambert
My Husband, Reverend Richard W.A Dumville, died on 29.09.2000 after fighting MDA for 18 months - he was 54 years old. My Son Paul Woodhouse-Severn and myself have supported The MND Association ever since - Jean Dumville
We hope more MND research can help detect rarer forms
For my Dad
We need a cure
My Mother died of MND in 2005. My Father died of MSA (multiple system atrophy) in 2000. I do what i can to support research into these horrible conditions. - Gregory Jones
My Husband passed away in April and I want no one to go through what he went through, therefore any donations that can help fight this disease are worthwhile - M Curran
My husband and dearest friend of over 40 years first showed symptoms in March 2021. He deteriorated rapidly losing speech, mobility and swallowing. He was finally diagnosed in January 2022. He died March 2022. Throughout the MND Association supported us. Thank you
We need to find a cure for this terrible disease.
My estate is divided equally among my family in my Will. My husband died of MND and my elder son of a brain tumour. They are still part of my family so their shares will go to MND Association and the Brain Tumour Charity
I do my best to support the MND Association
We've pledged to help find a cure
My late husband Robert died from MND in July 2014 after being diagnosed in November 2012. I support the work of MND and all those working to find a cure for this terrible disease. I pray each day that this will happen in the near future.
This year I have witnessed for myself from two acquaintances with MND how devastating illness this is. It places intolerable pressures on both patient and family members. It is life-changing, life-curtailing and at the moment unrelenting. If I can make just a small contribution towards its extinction then a part of my estate will have been well-used.
The help we received will never be forgotten
A cure is needed - I hope this helps
In memory of my Mother
My husband died with MND in November 2015. It broke my heart as MND took over his body.
In memory of my husband
I received so much support and kindness
A dear friend was diagnosed with motor neurone disease
My twin brother had MND
A world free from MND
I will always be eternally grateful for the care and support given by the MNDA
I lost my dear father to MND
David died of MND in 2016, aged 31. He was an athlete. It is the most devastating disease and we were greatly helped by the MNDA.
We hope so much that a treatment and a cure will be found soon.
To give hope to other people with MND and to find a cure so they don't go through what I am.
This is for Catherine my girlfriend of 30 years, who passed away in August 2019. She died of MND and MNDA who have been very supportive to me. I want to tell the world about MND.
Dedicated to my father
When I retired from social work I loked for ways to remain involved in helping others. MNDA was looking for volunteers and I find the work rewarding.
Supporting MNDA in our Wills is something we were pleased to do
My support for those with MND started many year's ago when I saw the result of the disease on a lovely, caring, vivacious aunt, mother of two teenage girls. On my last visit to her, before she died, she was unable to move and could only communicate by being shown words on a board which she acknowledged by blinking. It was heartbreaking.
My aunt's grandson suffered from another genetic nerve/brain related disease, ALD & died aged around 7 years old. It was then that I wanted to remember them with a gift in my Will to support your work and research.
My Husband Christopher has MND and we both feel not enough money is given to support the cause. My granddaughter aged 7 and her Mum raised over £1,000 by running 5k & 10k in Jan/Feb
I was diagnosed with MND nearly 3 years ago. I'm luckier than some as on-set is slow, but it is sadly changing my life. If I can help others overcome MND and live longer fulfilling lives, then I'm very happy to help support The MND Association with my pledge - Tim Proudman
My Husband Glyn was diagnosed with MND in 2013 and sadly passed away in 2016 aged 57. The sooner we can find a cure for MND the better. My pledge is just a small amount, Glyn always wanted me to donate something to help research.
I hope this will help in the fight to find a cure
He sadly passed away from this cruel disease in 2018. We were both very grateful to the Association for all of the help we received during the six years he faught the disease and I hope the funds will go towards research and also help others suffering from the disease.
My Late husband passed away with motor neurone disease and I trained as an Association Visitor so I feel strongly to do all I can to help.
In memory of our brother-in-law
My brother-in-law died from MND in 1995 and I have supported the MNDA every since
My wife lived with MND for 5 years. During that time she received a lot of help from our local branch of MNDA and from the MNDA funded team at John Radcliffe. Hence my decision to leave a legacy.
No cure has been found
A cruel, evil disease.
A cure has to be found soon to prevent the devastation it brings with it
My husband died from MND in 2013. We had 3 years of great help from the Association & NHS
We have benefited from support from the MND Association
I am now in a wheelchair. Anything that will help find out more about this disease must be done
The reason that I have decided to leave a gift to MNDA is because a very good friend of mine recently died from MND after a very short time of being diagnosed (about a year) it was awful seeing him go down hill so rapidly and I feel very strongly that mnda needs lots more funds in order to do scientific research with the hope of finding some sort of cure or at least, a drug that will slow it down dramatically especially for the vigorous strain that Geoff was unfortunate enough to get.
I lost my partner of 42years to MND age 62. Also my nephew age 64 to MND
I've pledged a gift in my Will in loving memory of my dear husband, who died 8 years ago from this horrid disease, hoping it will help to find a cure
