We are passionate about funding the best and brightest  MND research within Australia – to discover treatments and ultimately, a cure.

The estimated life time risk of being diagnosed with MND is 1 in 350 for males and 1 in 500 for females – this is the same as one person in an average movie theatre

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

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 affected anyone at anytime
