Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association
Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving care, research and campaigning.
MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing neurological condition affecting up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. The disease causes messages from nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord that control movement to gradually stop reaching the muscles, leading them to weaken, stiffen and waste.
They fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure. They campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND are recognised and addressed by wider society.
Teenage Cancer Trust
Teenage Cancer Trust is dedicated to making sure every young person facing cancer gets specialised nursing care and support, which puts them in the best possible place, physically, mentally and emotionally, for their cancer treatment and beyond.
More than 2,000 young people aged 13-24 are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every year. Even with family and health professionals around them, young people facing cancer may find themselves feeling isolated, scared and alone.
Teenage Cancer Trust's 28 specialist units in hospitals across the UK are staffed by trained nurses and other professionals, who treat young people as an individual first and a cancer patient second. They also support young people in other hospitals and in their own homes.
