    Some weeks ago Death in Paradise featured ALS, strange when we use MND, but it was part of the plot

    A nice touch by Eddie Redmayne dedicating his Oscar to us all.

    Yes, John. He has done so much for us all with this film. An exemplary performance, not just by him but the whole cast. I don't think MND is a disease in the shadows now, do you? And nor should it be Love. Joycie

    I suspect time will tell on any long-term benefit the film brings to the exposure of MND.

    Julianne Moore won Best Actress' for another important condition (Alzheimer’s) in 'Still Alice' so well done to her too.

    Trevor:
    Thanks. I wonder if MNDA can capitalize on the Oscar theme in 2015. Our next windfall might lie therein but i am not sure how. Aside from Joycie's stroke of brilliance with the Keep It Taped campaign idea.

    Jock:
    Given he dedicated it to us I just wonder if we can take this further somehow? I am not sure how but maybe it will reveal itself to one of us in a dream tonight.

    perhaps, like the olympic torch, the Oscar could relay between us all from one end of UK to the other...
