MidCoast Council held a fundraising month last October to raise funds and awareness for MND NSW. Each Monday morning they held a morning tea with trolley treats and merchandise sales, ending the month with a fundraising BBQ lunch on Friday 25 October.
We’re running a series of free information days throughout the year at different locations across the state especially for you. Our first “Living well with MND” day will be held at the Gosford RSL club on Thursday 27 February. We’d love for you to attend one of these education events.
At a previous Living well with MND day one person said “attending Living well with MND was such a valuable experience for all our family. We now feel more confident, informed about our choices and what we can do to make life with MND easier. It was good to meet others in similar situations and we learnt a great deal. A great day!”
Karen Martin our Manager of Service Support, Kristina Dodds our Education and Carer Support Program Coordinator along with Sue Donaldson an MND Advisor, recently represented MND NSW at the 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND in Perth last December.
With over 850 people from all over the world (talking things like the latest in MND research, therapeutic strategies, clinical trials, emerging biomarkers, palliative care, genetics verses environment debates and improving care practice), this annual 3 day event is the world’s premier meet up on ALS/MND.
