My name is Stephen Hedges & I'm raising money to purchase an iSTAT Blood Gas Monitor for Preston Royal Hospital MND Care Centre.My late wife Kath was diagnosed with Motor Neurones Disease [MND] 5 years ago on the 11th February 2010 & told she had 2 to 5 years to live; MND can affect any adult at any age, it is a fatal disease that attacks the nerves that that control movement, people with MND can still think & feel, but their muscles refuse to work, there is no effective treatment & no cure.As the disease progresses everyday tasks that seem simple & we all take for granted become more & more difficult; an appointment at the MND clinic in Preston can take upto 6 to 7 hours from waking-up in the morning until returning home in the evening, a home visit from the Specialist MND Nurse with the iSTAT Blood Gas monitor takes less than an hour & it means Kath didn't have to leave the house, get up early & equally important wasn't exhausted for the next few days.
