MND NSW provides information, support and education for people living with motor neurone disease, their families, friends and carers in NSW, ACT and NT. We also provide information and education about motor neurone disease for health, community and residential care professionals.
Peter and Beth, members of our MND community, have shared their favourite recipes for delicious smoothies that can be modified to cater to a variety of tastes and swallowing abilities. They wanted to create a smoothie that had the calories, protein, fibre and other nutritional content to help manage weight but was also a delicious drink to enjoy!
To mark 40 years of MND New South Wales this year, we are highlighting 40 years of stories from our members, staff, volunteers and experts.

Marjorie is a one-of-a-kind, very special person. She started MND NSW back in 1981 (then known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Society of Australia) after her husband, Bill, was diagnosed with ALS, the most common form of motor neurone disease (MND).
