Why the Ice Bucket Challenge is so important
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord.
There is no cure but the MND Assocation funds and promotes research that leads to new understanding and treatments, and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
MND and ALS are different descriptions of the same disease
ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which is the most common type of motor neurone disease. In the UK we use the term MND and in the USA they use ALS.
