Neale Daniher is an AFL legend who is unfortunately battling an illness called MND with no cure, Neale has been so positive in his illness and he always has words of wisdom and a smile on his face. 

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching the muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe.

Once a year he urges people to donate to find a cure for MND, on the queens birthday he also has guests of past and present AFL players and personalities to slide into a pool full of ice water to raise awareness also known as the BIG Freeze before the Collingwood vs Melbourne football game at the MCG. 

Nothing is impossible and this life taking illness can and will be cured.
