Kevin Sinfield MBE is the Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby. He has selflessly raised over a million pounds for MND in support of his team mate Robbie Burrow who was diagnosed with the condition a year ago. 

Sinfield ran seven marathons in seven days in support of his former team-mate and the MND Association, raising £1.2m shortly after he crossed the finishing line for the final time on Monday.

Motor neurone disease is an uncommon condition affecting the brain and nerves. It's nearly always fatal, but some people live with it for many years.

Symptoms of motor neurone disease include muscle weakness, twitches, slurred speech and difficulty swallowing. The symptoms get worse over time.
 
Treatment for motor neurone disease aims to ease the symptoms as much as possible. Treatments include physiotherapy, speech therapy and medicines.
 
Motor neurone disease happens when cells in the brain and nerves, called motor neurones, gradually stop working. It's not known why this happens.

the prevalence or number of people living with MND at any one time is approximately seven in every 100,000.

There's no cure for motor neurone disease, but treatment can help reduce the impact the symptoms have on your life. You'll be cared for by a team of specialists and a GP. Treatments include: highly specialised clinics, typically involving a specialist nurse and occupational therapy to help make everyday tasks easier.

Please find it in your hearts to give Kevin the appreciation of a country. Give him a knighthood.
