About one out of every ten people with MND will receive a diagnosis of ‘motor neurone disease with frontotemporal dementia' or MND/FTD. Often the symptoms of dementia precede the motor symptoms, sometimes by a number of years. The 11th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias (ICFTD) is on in Sydney during November and running concurrently with the ICFTD 2018 program will be a specialist day on Tuesday 13 November focused on issues and challenges for carers.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Batemans Bay Walk on Sunday 26 August. Although there was a bit of rain overnight, the morning sun shone brightly. Many wonderful families and friends gathered to show their support for people with motor neurone disease. Thank you to the local Lions Club for their yummy sausage sizzle and the many stall holders who supported the Walk. A special thank you to the large contingent who made the trek across from Young and to the Go Go Girls who raised over $4500. It was a great day with over $11,500 raised.
