Hi all,
Thought I'd say hello - fishing around for useful info and tips. My dad has been diagnosed with ALS/MND this week.

Lots to learn and lots to do! I live in Blackpool and will be going along to the next Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre meeting on the 11th Jan. If there is anyone else out there in Lancashire just let me know.

Here's to a joyous and prosperous 2011 to all.

Hi Lesley,

Welcome to the forum. There are a fair few people on here who have MND as well as those who care for them, so you should be in good company.

Hi, to everyone. I've just joined this site - this is the first post. I'm also in North Lancashire, a member of the N.Lancs/S.Cumbria branch this past 11 years (how time flies!)
I have Kennedy's Disease, which is pretty rare. Not sure how many of us in UK but probably not much more than 50: certainly less than 100. It's a genetic thing - my elder brother had it, as did an uncle and I have just heard that my second cousin has it, too.
I know lots of the Blackpool people and our two branches often meet up so I may meet up with you, Lelsey, some time in the future.
