Assunta Meleca - Racing for MNDi
From: Wednesday May 8, 2019, 7:00 am
To: Wednesday May 8, 2019, 8:30 am
Assunta’s plight to establish the foundation, Racing for MNDi, came about from her witnessing
several family members suffer and eventually die from Motor Neurone Disease.
She has lost 6
members of her family to MND and is using this misfortune for science.
Assunta’s foundation is different to other MND foundations whereby, the inherited form of MND is being used as a starting
point for research.
To date, there is no known cause or trigger for MND, except the inherited
form, and so Racing for MNDi is funding research in the race for a cure for MND.
