Having a member of the family diagnosed with MND is absolutely devastating for anyone, but it can be particularly tough for children who are still developing emotionally.
A parent’s MND diagnosis can place an especially heavy burden on young shoulders – they don’t yet have the tools to cope with the news that their parent might not be around for much longer, or the added pressures that come with watching a loved one suffer.
This Christmas, many children will be struggling to make sense of this traumatic news and will be at the beginning of an incredibly difficult and confusing journey. But with your support, we can help give these children the tools they need to cope.
Will you give today and help more children get the support they need to cope this Christmas?
