My Personal Message

Hi there,

On Saturday Night with Miriam on 23.08.14 Oliver Callan will be taking the Ice Bucket Challenge. He was nominated by Sharon Ní Bheoláin. Oliver has then decided to nominate me and since I have already been nominated by a number of others who did it during the week including Sinead Kennedy and Kathryn Thomas and most importantly by the IMNDA themselves, I will be doing it!

So if we can raise €2,000 you will see us both getting an ice cold bucket of water poured over our heads on the programme. And it is all for an incredible cause - The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA), a charity I have always supported.

Please read a few words about the IMNDA below. You can donate using the "sponsor me now" button below via credit or debit card. You can be assured that your transaction on the mycharity.ie website is very secure. You will automatically receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support, and acknowledging the amount of your donation. Any donation no matter how small is hugely appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for your support,

Miriam
Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association

The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only support organisation in Ireland for people with MND; their families, friends and carers. Motor Neurone Disease (also called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – ALS) is a neurological condition that does not discriminate, striking people of all ages. There is currently no treatment or cure. The damage caused by MND is progressive so it gets worse over time. On average one person dies every four days from MND in Ireland and the majority of people die within 1,000 days of being diagnosed.

The IMNDA cannot slow the progression of MND or change the outcome but we can alleviate the feelings of isolation and improve quality of life. We strive to ensure that each individual receives the care and support they require enabling them to live as active independent citizens in their own homes for as long as possible. Our services include home visits by our two MND Nurses, financial assistance towards home care, provision of specialised medical equipment, funding counselling  and funding towards MND Research.
