Motor neuron diseases are rare yet aggressive and cause the breakdown of voluntary movement of the muscles.  These diseases impair a person’s ability to walk, speak, swallow, breathe, and control arm and hand movement.  They are typically not hereditary and affect fewer than 30,000 people worldwide.  Because of the extreme rareness of these diseases, funding for research is scarce, which is why it is so important to provide support where possible.  For more information and ways to help, visit the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (SPF) web site or call 877-SPF-GIVE.
