Funding vital assistive equipment
Caring for and improving the lives of the 2,000 Australians currently living with MND is one of FightMND’s key priorities. It is these Australians, and those who have lost their battle to the Beast, that we continue fight for.
Thanks to the support of the FightMND Army, we have been the single largest funder of vital new assistive equipment for people living with MND in Australia since 2017.
In 2021, FightMND committed a further $2.3 million towards state-based MND organisations to enable the purchase of essential care equipment such as mobility, communication and respiratory support devices for people living with MND.
This takes FightMND’s investment in care equipment to $6.9 million since 2017.
We are proud to work with our MND allies across the country.
