This man is a saint for all the fund raising work he has done whilst having MND which is worsening.
I was absolutely inspired to read the following today

A new drug developed by ­Melbourne researchers has ­significantly slowed the progression of motor neurone disease.
It is the first time a treatment has acted on the cause of the ­disease in humans, rather than on just the symptoms.
The trial of the copper-­delivery capsule in 32 patients from Melbourne and Sydney was partly paid for by AFL legend Neale Daniher’s Fight MND Foundation. The trial is the result of 15 years of research and testing at Parkville institutes.
Stunning results after six months’ treatment with the drug, CuATSM, showed that ­progression of the disease had been slowed by 70 per cent.
Most patients have since ­continued with the therapy under an extension of the trial.
The drug is also being tested in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
The phase one safety trial, to which Fight MND contributed $500,000, also improved ­patients’ lung function, cognition and motor ability.

Unfortunately this may have come too late to assist Neale but this has potential to dramatically improve the quality of life for current and future sufferers of this horrible disease.

Take a bow Neale Daniher, you are a true legend.

Absolutely brilliant news. Too late for you Bobby, but you’d be happy with this!
