This morning on The Brekky Show, Kirste & Morro had the absolute honour to chat to Neale Daniher, former AFL player and coach, now MND battler and Morro’s personal hero. In 2014, Neale revealed he had been diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease (MND) and opened up to the Brekky hosts about how he’s been able to maintain his inspiring, strong, positive attitude.
“Often regret is about what you didn’t do, not what you did do. So don’t ask why, ask why not. When I was diagnosed I was told there was no cure, and I had no hope. I asked why not? Why don’t I have hope? Why cant we find a cure here?”
Since the first annual “Big Freeze” Daniher has raised over $36 Million for MND. When asked how far away he thinks the cure is, he offers the analogy of a garden.
“You work the soil, plant the seeds, water them and wait for them to bloom. Scientists are back to work, a few drug trials are under way, and I just hope we have the cure for the next generation. ”
Neale Daniher is a true Aussie legend, spreading hope and inspiration wherever he goes, have a listen to his story below:
