On 21 August ABC TV aired 'The Village' featuring former Foreign Correspondent reporter Sean Dorney who has MND, as he visited his beloved Papua New Guinea. You can catch up on this episode on ABC iView here and read the backstory from Cameraman, Craig Berkman, here. Many families living with MND will be able to find a lot in common, "Sean and Pauline take a fairly practical and good-humoured approach to dealing with this increasingly frustrating condition, so you might wonder where the emotion comes from for the rest of us since we're not the ones dealing with it...

As a team we learned early that we could all do little things to make day-to-day life easier, such as finding a drinking straw so cups and glasses didn't need to be lifted, or cutting up food to eliminate the need for Sean to grapple with a knife and fork, or being aware that a simple step-up might need a bit of physical intervention".  Read Craig's full backstory here.
