If you have not?been to an MND conference, do try. The best part as ever, is meeting up with people living with MND and their families. We often call it the “MND family? and it really does feel like you are meeting up with members of a large supportive family. Other highlights are meeting staff from the Association, who normally you only email and looking at all of the stands with all of the MNDA?s literature.
