To cure, to care,
to make aware.
What are we fighting for?
We are fighting to beat 'The Beast'
We want a world without Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and it takes an army of people to help achieve this – and we have the FightMND Army on our side.
Our core aims are to generate greater awareness of the disease, to fund world-class research and drug trials to find an effective treatment and ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease and provide assistive care equipment to many Australians fighting the disease.
There is no known cause, limited knowledge of the natural course of the disease, there is no effective treatment and there is no cure.
We call it ‘The Beast’. This is why we fight.
