Today I finally completed my ALS/MND Ice Bucket Challenge, this really got me thinking about all those who sadly do not lead normal lives due to health problems. I all of a sudden felt very proud of myself and all those out there who took part in the ice bucket challenge with the hope that they donated money to either MNDA which is found at http://www.mndassociation.org/get-involved/donations or texting ICED55 to 70070 to donate £5 to Motor Neurone Disease Association in the UK. However, in America you can donate to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association at http://www.alsa.org/donate/ both charities are aiming for a world without ALS/MND. They aim to fund research into this horrible life ending disease and do a huge amount of work to receive this funding, however the craze of the ice bucket challenge has allowed this funding to come in thick and fast.
Luckily it has never affected myself or anyone I know but I am deeply sorry to those that it has, you will be forever in our thoughts. I hope I see a day when MND/ALS stops taking victims. Thank you for reading this post! Feel free to donate and not do the challenge but I nominate you all!!
