Motor neurone find a ‘smoking gun’

Motor neurone find a 'smoking gun': “In the short term, however, MNDA has launched a ‘living better for longer’ campaign to push for better access to best-practice care and improved support for people with MND and their carers.”

I can only say what I said yesterday. We need to bring some of these less common conditions out into the open so that we can better prepare ourselves to be helpers for and managers of such conditions. The article is well worth the read because you realise there have been some useful breakthroughs in motor neurone disease. You also realise when you read the article that knowledge is a powerful thing. It is important to get MRN treated as early as possible. One of the people in the article was diagnosed and treated because his neighbour had recognised the symptoms. We can help each other. We can’t necessarily stop these diseases occurring at this stage but we can provide a buffer zone, an alert system and a support group to help people who contract such illnesses.
