Please help MNDSA give people impacted by MND in South Australia the gift of time this Christmas

Watch Graham's Story


An MND diagnosis is as life-changing as it gets. What do you do? Who will help? What’s next? There are endless questions. 

Please take a few minutes to read about Graham's story and please give generously to our 2021 Christmas Appeal.

If you are in a position to contribute, your gift can provide much-needed support for South Australians living with MND, just like Graham.

Graham Johnson's Story

Graham is a devoted family man – the loving husband of Barb, father of Kellie and Rebecca, and adored Poppa to his precious grandson Hunter with whom he spends a great deal of time.

Graham was diagnosed with MND on 30th August 2019, when Hunter was just 6 months old and he is infinitely aware of the heartbreaking reality of the situation.

“I am unlikely to see Hunter on his first day of school or watch him grow up and this is what hurts me the most”.

MND is a terminal illness.  There is no remission and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is only 27 months.

Graham’s biggest goal following diagnosis is to spend quality time with his loved ones.

At MNDSA, we know that, ultimately, we provide our clients with the gift of quality time.  We provide them with practical, physical and psychological support – a means for them, their carers and family to navigate their way through each day as easily and simply as possible, so that they can spend as much time as possible with their loved ones. 

“MNDSA are a tremendous help to me and keep me positive.  I would be struggling without their help, and I would not be where I am at the moment without them” Graham reflects.

If you are in a position to support the work that we do, your donation will help us to give our clients the care and support that anyone with MND so rightfully deserves. 

Help us give people with MND the gift of time - a quality of life, in the setting of their own choice this Christmas.

Until there's a cure, we care.


Thank you for your support in helping us make a difference.
