Walk To d'Feet MND Illawarra 2023

We're fundraising for MND NSW

My beautiful mother, Lidia Bilbatua, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in July 2017 and sadly passed away on New Year’s Eve, December 2018. 

Her positive attitude, strength and determination was admirable in every aspect of her life, especially through her MND journey 🦋

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a neurodegenerative disease that causes rapidly progressive muscle weakness. Specifically, the disease affects nerve cells (motor neurons) that control the muscles that enable you to move, speak, breathe and swallow.

There is no current cure for MND 💔

MND is believed to be caused because of a combination of environmental, lifestyle and genetic factors but the exact cause of MND in not yet known. I feel that’s it’s so important and crucial to fundraise and raise awareness so that’s why, on the 7th of May 2023, I’ll be taking up the challenge in MND NSW's Illawarra Walk to d’Feet MND representing Team Lidia. If you’re free and would like to participate in the walk, please click on the “join team” link and come and join us 🥰

All donations will go towards MND NSW supporting more Australians impacted by Motor Neurone Disease and will also provide vita funds for research !

(All donations over $2 are tax deductible.)
