A will is a legal document that reflects who and what is most important to you – including the causes that you support. At a time of emotional distress, your will provides your loved ones with a clear understanding of your wishes.
Leaving a gift to MNDSA in your will is a thoughtful and lasting way of supporting the work of MNDSA and helps ensure that we can continue to support all those who are affected by a diagnosis of MND, be they people living with MND or their loved ones, for it is estimated that for every person diagnosed with MND another fourteen people will live with the consequences of MND.
