Helping Hand Mobility

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease where your own body attacks the motor neurones, or the nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. As this happens, the messages that are sent to your muscles from your brain gradually stop getting through. This leads to muscle weakness and wasting. Although there is currently no cure for MND, the symptoms can be managed to help suffers maintain the best possible quality of life. My father Brian was diagnosed with MND in April 2011.

I spent much of my time trying to keep up with the pace of the disease as it took Dad's mobility away over a short period of time. Although Dad was entitled to full mobility allowance, getting the right equipment at the right time proved a problem. This lead me to sourcing good quality used mobility equipment to ensure I could keep Dad as mobile as possible at a time when he needed it most. Dad was set free from MND in May 2012.
