The 2-for-2 Fund concept reflects the revolving door that currently exists for MND in this country. For every 2 people diagnosed with MND each day, another 2 die because of MND. By committing to donate $242 per year (or “2-for-2”) donated as $20.15c each month you can help close the door.
This regular giving campaign provides a way for you to commit to a direct investment into the lives of MND patients and their families. For a donation of only $20.15c each month (the price of 1 cup of coffee per week each month), you will enable MND patients to find support and hope through helping fund vital MND research, clinical trials, and the provision of assistive equipment.
For just $20.15 a month you can make a real difference….
That’s less than the price of purchasing one coffee per week for the month
That’s the same as the price of one adult movie ticket each month
That’s less than the average price for a main meal at a restaurant each month
The estimated life time risk of being diagnosed with MND is 1 in 350 for males and 1 in 400 for females – this is about the same as one person in an average movie theatre. It can strike anyone.
More than 2000 people are currently fighting MND in Australia. 60% male and 40% female. Every day at least 2 more are diagnosed and unfortunately 2 more die because of the disease
A new study led by researchers with the United Nations (UN) has projected that the number of cases of MND globally will increase by 69% over the next 25 years, primarily due to population ageing
Approximately 58% of people with MND are under the age of 65, but the disease can strike at any age and can affect anyone.
The total economic cost of MND in Australia was $2.37 billion in 2015. With around 2000 people currently fighting in Australia, this equates to $1.1 million per person
For each year they live, every MND patient will on average require $31,598 worth of equipment (this does not include costs associated with carers, medications, home renovations, wheelchair accessible cars, or hospital admissions)
The average lifespan of someone diagnosed with MND is between 2-5 yrs. This equates to an average lifetime cost of between $63,196 and $157,990 in equipment needs alone
The estimated cost to live with the disease is around $200,000+ per year depending on level of disability and needs of the individual
In 2013 there were 147,678 deaths registered in Australia. With 787 deaths related to MND that year, MND therefore accounted for 1 in 200 deaths in 2013
The number of deaths each year from MND is rising - the disease can affect anyone at anytime
