What is My Impact?

On average, there are approximately 470 Victorians with MND at any one time. In Australia, 2 people are diagnosed with MND every day, and 2 people die of MND every day. All money raised through Shut Up! For MND directly supports Victorians living with MND by funding the direct care, support and vital assistive equipment required to help them live better for longer.

The real cost of MND 

MND is a costly disease. Not only does it eventually cost you your life, it can also place a large financial burden on people who have been diagnosed and their loved ones. 

It is estimated that the average cost of MND is $1.1million per person, including approximately $31,598 for aids and equipment, home or vehicle modifications, and assistive technology (Deloitte, Economic analysis of motor neurone disease in Australia, 2015). 

MND Victoria endeavour to help alleviate this burden as much as we can. We know that having access to the right information and the right pieces of equipment help people living with MND to remain safe, mobile and engaged with their community. That's why our services, including equipment, are provided at no cost to the person with MND. 

Over 70% of our funding comes from the generosity of people like you. So please, Shut Up! and encourage your family and friends to give. Every gift, no matter how big or small, truly makes a difference.
