MND Queensland Christmas Appeal 2018


With the help of people like you, MND Queensland is there with information, support and services to help make peoples’ MND journey a little less traumatic. This Christmas, please donate to help make life a little easier for those facing this devastating diagnosis.

MND Queensland commemorates 35 years of service and support in 2018. Over the years we have helped thousands of Queenslanders in their time of need. This year alone we have assisted over 240 individuals with MND along with their families. Our areas of work include:

  • MND Advisory Service
  • MND Equipment Service
  • Resources
  • Support Groups
  • Advocacy
  • Research for a cure

All of the above work relies on donations and fundraising efforts as we only receive $50,000 per year from the State Government (which represents around 7% of our operating budget) and in 2019 even this small amount of funding will disappear! Without the support of people like you, our essential services would not be possible and people affected by MND would have nowhere to turn when they are most in need. During this time of giving, your generous donation to MND Queensland’s Christmas Appeal will help others continue to receive vital support and services.

Below you will read personal accounts from Nathaniel and Amanda on how MND Queensland has provided services and support to them. Sadly, Amanda lost her father to MND just after Christmas last year, so this will be her family’s first Christmas without him.
