LJ Hooker Cessnock | Kurri Kurri are hosting a charity golf day to raise funds for families who cannot afford the expensive medical equipment required to aid loved ones who are suffering with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
 
MND is an illness that has personally touched the life of LJ Hooker Cessnock | Kurri Kurri’s Buying Experience Executive, Brendon Smith.
“I watched my uncle suffer from it for nine years – although most people don’t make it past three years once diagnosed,” Mr Smith said.
 
“MND is a disease with no cure and no prevention. If diagnosed with the disease, it is a sure death sentence and the best we can do is make life as comfortable and easy as we can for the short time our loved ones have left.”
 
“I am honoured to be a part of this fundraiser,” he said.
 
While Mr Smith’s uncle was able to afford the equipment he needed to help him with day-to-day life, not everyone is so fortunate.
 
“Some of the equipment he required included a neuro switch, wheel chair, mobility vehicle and an electronic bed with a pulley to get him in and out of bed,” Mr Smith said.
“Without even half of these items we wouldn’t have been able to provide him with the care he needed and his quality of life in his remaining years would not have been as good as it was. This is the reason we’re holding this fundraiser. All proceeds will go towards providing essential equipment for families affected by this horrible disease,” he said.
The Charity Golf Day will be held on Friday, September 22, at the Stonebridge Golf Club, Mt View Rd, Cessnock. Player registration is at 11am and $40 per person, with the shotgun start set for 12pm.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association NSW.
“We’re asking everyone to get down to the golf day to raise money for a great cause and have a bit of fun while doing it,” Mr Smith said.
