South Australians with Motor Neurone Disease

Sarah Annicchiarico, a Senior Associate in the Commercial Litigation and Estate Disputes teams, has recently been appointed to the committee of Management of the Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia (MND SA).

In this role, Sarah will work with MND’s Executive Director, Karen Percival, and other Committee Members to obtain the resources, funds and personnel necessary for MND SA to achieve its core objective – to provide a vital source of free support and services to all South Australians affected by Motor Neurone Disease.

Motor Neurone Disease is a terminal illness which can affect all of us – it does not discriminate. It is where the neurones controlling the muscles stop functioning correctly and, as the motor neurones fail, the muscles they control weaken which causes disability.  Symptoms of Motor Neurone Disease are different for each person that is diagnosed.  Some people need to use a wheelchair because they can’t walk anymore.  Others need to use an iPad to communicate because they can’t talk anymore.  The mind stays active while the body becomes paralysed.

There is no known cure or effective treatment for Motor Neurone Disease and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 27 months.

MND SA offers a range of information and support services for South Australian people living with Motor Neurone Disease.  It improves the wellbeing of people in all stages of the disease by helping them to live better for longer in a setting of their choice – no matter their postcode or age.

MND SA is a 100% not for profit organisation which is solely funded through donations, bequests and fundraising activities.

How can you help MND SA?
