Katy Campbell started this petition to Jeremy Corbyn (Leader of Labour Party) and

People who have been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease are extremely vulnerable people at the best of times. 
Families of people who are living with MND are preparing to lose that person anyway, they don’t need the added stress that the government will not see them as vulnarable enough to protect them.
Motor Neurone Disease isn’t a common illness and is often overlooked by a lot of people. But no one wants to lose a loved one sooner than they have too, and why aren’t people with MND being looked after when they don’t have much time left. There is a global pandemic and  it angers me so much they’re just being left to the side lines. 
I lost my Dad to MND when I was 8 and can assure you that if this had happened when he was ill, we would all be so anxious about it due to the fact we knew he was going to die, but of MND. Not another illness he couldn’t fight because he was too weak. MND is an illness that most cases start to show between 40-50. And no one should have to worry about having COVID-19 on top of the fact that soon they won’t be able to move or that they will be losing the power of speech, and no thought whatsoever has gone towards them. 
I am asking you to sign so they can have a chance at spending more time with their family before it inevitably comes to an end anyway.
