Let's write the next chapter

Throughout June our Shortened Stories campaign raised awareness of the devastating impact of motor neurone disease. MND kills more than a third of people within a year of diagnosis, and more than half within two years. A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is 1 in 300.

By working with those affected by the disease, artists and filmmakers brought to life three stories that have been or will be cut short by MND. Now, we’re asking you to help us write the next chapter in the fight against the disease, by raising awareness, raising funds to support research towards a cure, and growing our voice on campaigning for improvements in care.
