MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE
Motor Neurone Disease also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Lou Gherig’s Disease or Maladie de Charcot, MND is a condition which relentlessly destroys the nerves that enable us to control all our movements while leaving the intellect and senses generally unaffected.
(MND) kills three people a day in the United Kingdom – more than the number dying from AIDS – and 1,200 people are newly diagnosed each year, with a life expectancy of 2-5 years, in that country alone. There is currently no cure.
Phobias occur in several forms. A specific phobia is a fear of a particular object or situation. Social phobia is a fear of being painfully embarrassed in a social setting. And agoraphobia, which often accompanies panic disorder, is a fear of being in any situation that might provoke a panic attack, or from which escape might be difficult if one occurred.

Approximately 30% of reported cases of tetanus are fatal. In the U.S., where 40-50 cases of tetanus occur each
year, most deaths occur in person more than 50 years of age.
