Motor neurone disease is devastating for the whole family. Many people living with MND have children or young people at home. Being able to talk about their feelings and worries, with someone who is not a relation, can help them cope at such a traumatic time.
Our Children and Young People’s Service support them and their families, to deal with these difficult emotions and to feel less alone. One young person is Megan, now 22, who wanted to share her family’s story. In April 2020, her dad John was diagnosed with MND.
