My mum's close friends and I are raising money for the MNDA. My mum, Jayne Jenking was diagnosed with MND a couple of years ago and is living with this debilitating disease.
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves in the brain and spinal cord this means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.
MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe, though not all symptoms happen to all sufferers.
In the UK six people a day are diagnosed with MND and six people a day die from MND. It kills a third within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis.
There is no cure for MND, symptoms have to be managed to help achieve the best quality of life.
On 8 July at 2pm we are having a Cornish cream tea garden party to raise money for the MNDA to support their great work. Join us at Trolver Vean, Feock, TR3 6RP. (Accessed by the path at Penpol boatyard).
Come rain or shine there will be cakes and scones galore, a bouncy castle for the under 8's, tombola and a raffle with some fantastic prizes, including a cream tea at the Tresanton hotel, signed copy of Rick Stein's new book, vouchers for a Fal river cruise, Elm Tree Tea Room, Dairyland and a family swim at Hotel St Michael and more...
