Sue's MND Story

Diagnosed with MND in April 2023, Sue lives with her partner Tom at Bribie Island and is a breast cancer survivor. She lost her Mum, Ruth to MND in 1985 and her brother, Ian passed from the disease in 2022. Her younger sister, Ruth was diagnosed with MND soon after Sue’s own diagnosis.

Sue’s symptoms are progressing and she told us ‘Now I can hardly walk and there’s something wrong with my hands.’ Tom added ‘A year ago she was working.’

Fortunately, thanks to our generous community, MND Queensland recently delivered a powered wheelchair to make community access a little easier for Sue. Tom said ‘That’s good because we'll be able to get down again to the Bribie Passage and go back to the beach.’

MND Queensland supports families impacted by MND, but without ongoing government funding, we’re completely reliant on self-generated funding and the generosity of our community to provide our services. Sue is very grateful for the support that our community has provided and said, ‘The allied health services and everything has been fantastic! Like Speech Therapy at MND Queensland.’

Watch out for our winter edition of The Cornflower with Sue's full story.

Please show your generosity and give to help families impacted by MND. Your gift will help to increase independence and mobility for people with MND through the provision of essential equipment. Your donation will help people through an MND diagnosis through providing information and support through our MND Advisory Service and inform them through our Education Program. You'll be helping provide allied health services such as occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy. Your donation will be helping to preserve the voices of people with MND through voice banking so if that they lose the ability to speak due to MND, they can continue to communicate and sound like themselves with the use of technology.
