Ask Us A Question

Ask us about MND or maybe a question about things we like to do.

Ask your parent or guardian to send in your question using our Contact page.

If your question is picked to show on this page, we will send you a little gift!

Does MND hurt?

“It’s not painful, but people with MND get aches and pains if they can’t move about.”

Can we make a vaccine for MND?

“MND isn’t like a virus or infection, so a vaccine wouldn’t work. Doctors are trying to find other drugs to help.”

Can my Daddy get help to breathe better?

“He may need help from a breathing machine to get more air. Some work through a tube in the neck. Some use a mask. It’s a bit like wearing a snorkel, but he won’t have to swim!”

My grandad uses a powered scooter to get about and wants me to decorate it. What can I do?

“Your Grandad sounds cool..! You could add badges, stripes and numbers to make it look like a racing car.”

My mum needs soft foods to eat. What can I make for her?

“I love mashed banana! Or see my recipe for ice-cream bread on the Bake it page – you can mash this with cream to make it soft.”

If you ask a question, come back next week to see if it gets answered!

puzzled Why can’t penguins fly?
Click to find out!
Unlike the wings of other birds, penguins' wings are more like flippers. This means they can't use them to fly in the air, but they do use them to move through water. In fact, penguins are so good at swimming, they look like they're flying underwater!
