Terrible news, awful awful disease I donít know if itís through the good work that these guys have done during there battle with this illness that Iíve heard so much about it or if itís becoming more common but I really hope thereís some sort of breakthrough on the treatment/prevention side.
1 in 50,000 folk in the UK are diagnosed with MND every year
Men are 54% more likely to get it.
The older you are the more likely you are to get it.
The last new treatment for the disease was 30 years ago and it wasn't significant.
Lastly there appears to be a link emerging with head trauma sustained in contact sports as a risk factor.
We could all get this hellish disease at any time in our lives so it is relevant to us all.
Some sort of breakthrough is badly needed.
