The Federal Government has announced that they will contribute five million dollars to Neale Daniher’s charity Fight MND.
Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party Josh Frydenberg announced the news on behalf of the Government during the Channel Seven halftime show tonight.
“It’s a disease that affects many people in the community,” Frydenberg told Daniher and Hamish McLachlan.
“We’ve got to find a cure.”
“This money will go to medical research and clinical trials.”
“Neale’s a true inspiration to so many people.”
A visibly grateful Daniher declared that the donation was 'the single largest' donation that Fight MND has ever received.
After being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2014 the former Melbourne coach started the initiative in order to find a cure for the crippling disease.
