Walk To d'Feet MND Penrith

I'm fundraising for MND NSW

As a young girl at the age of 14, I watched my father suffer with Motor Neuron Disease for over a year and a half until unfortunately my father lost his battle on 18 July 2007.


In addition, my aunty also suffered the same fate; she too lost her battle to this disease on 2 August 2015. Prior to my aunty passing away, she looked into the family tree on my father’s side of the family and established that this disease was hereditary; this meant that I had the option to get tested for this disease.


After a lot of consideration and time, I finally decided to take the massive step and get myself tested. I was distraught when the test results come back that I too have the SOD1 gene and that sometime in the near future I will also suffer the same fate as what my father and aunty did.


I have created this page to help raise funds not only to support families dealing with this disease but also to help find a cure, I hope in my lifetime I will get the chance to see the world one day without this disease

 

Thanks so much for your support!
