Campaigning for Targeted MND Research Funding
As you are aware, the coalition of patients, researchers and 3 MND charities (My Name5 Doddie Foundation, MND Association and MND Scotland) recently delivered a letter to Boris Johnson in support of our submission for the forthcoming spending round. Importantly, this closes on the 27th October and there is unlikely to be another review for at least 3 years. Given the average prognosis, as 5 people living with MND, we want to take advantage of this window of opportunity right now.
That’s why we’re asking if you could write to your MP ASAP, and no later than October 22nd, asking him/her to ask both Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for the DHSC, and Kwasi Kwarteng, Secretary of State for BEIS, to support our submission.
The reason we are asking you to ask your MP to write to both is because both departments fund MND research.
We have made it really easy for you, with a 3 step process
- Look up your MP’s email address – make a note of it.
- Choose a letter template – Don’t forget to add your name and address at the bottom to prove you are a constituent and why not even personalise!
- Simply copy and paste into your email app of choice and click send!
We really appreciate your efforts to ensure we give this submission to government every possible chance.
All the very best.
