The Lyric Club Glasgow are delighted to announce that we will be supporting MND Scotland throughout our 2015/16 season. Here is what they have to say about the work they do.
MND Scotland is the only Scottish charity providing care and support to people with Motor Neurone Disease (MND), their families, friends and carers. We provide a wide range of services, information about MND, and funding for research.
Through education, campaigning and research, we work collaboratively to ensure that people affected by MND have access to the highest quality care and support.
“Motor Neurone” is the name given to the type of nerve that carries messages from the brain to the muscles, telling the muscles when and how to contract. Motor Neurone Disease is the name given to a related group of diseases affecting the motor neurones of the nervous system, commonly referred to as MND (or ALS), which are degenerative, progressive and incurable. The disease can present in different ways depending on the location of the neurones involved. The cause of MND is not known, but a great deal of research is being carried out and advances are being made in understanding the disease process and the way in which motor neurones function.
