Our Story

In January this year, I lost my beautiful Mum, Sue, to Motor Neurone Disease at the age of 61. She was only diagnosed 4 months prior.
I would have to say, even to this day it’s all been a bit of a whirlwind. One minute, life is all pretty normal, then the next minute your world is turned upside down.
For me, being Mum’s only child, I dropped everything to care for Mum. It seemed the normal thing to do and I never felt as though there was any other option than to care for the woman who has been my rock my whole life. In fact, it was an absolute privilege to be able to provide her with the care she needed and spend some quality time together during the final phase of her life. 
In saying that, it was hard. Bloody hard. I don’t think anything can prepare you for the things you see and the things required of you as a caregiver.
Thinking about how much it changed my world so instantly, I can’t even imagine how much it affected Mum - one of the most independent women I have ever known, to lose her mobility, independence and I’m sure she felt at times like she had lost her dignity.
I’m not going to beat around the bush. MND is horrendous. It’s a horrible beast that not only affects the person with MND, but the support crew around them.
There is currently no cure or a single, definitive way to diagnose MND.
It might not bring my Mum back. But if we can stop others from having to go through this nightmare, it’s worth fighting for. 

We would also like to raise awareness for Shannon’s Bridge - a charity who assisted Mum throughout her short battle, and continue to provide support to me after Mum’s death. Our team “Sue’s Crew for Shannon’s Bridge” (Nicole and I) would like to honour both Mum’s amazing courage and strength as well as raise awareness for Shannon’s Bridge - who support people with MND, amongst many people requiring palliative care.

I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of FightMND and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Daniher's Drive 2019. Please help me support them by giving whatever you can, using the 'Donate Now' button. The more people that know about FightMND, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Jane and Nic xx
