On the 7th of August 2014 Jenny Simko was given devastating news that would change her life forever. After ten months of medical tests Jen was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). At the age of 53 she was happy, fit, enjoying life, happily married for 30 years, and was a proud mother of 3 wonderful children.
Receiving news that she had a terminal illness with no known cause and no known cure was shattering. Jen however amazed everyone with her remarkably positive approach in handling her situation and was truly inspiring.
As a registered nurse for over 30 years Jen had dedicated her life to helping people, and never expected to be needing care at that stage of her life. However MND is a cruel disease that does not discriminate and kills over 100,000 people globally each year.
Jen handled her many challenges with MND with incredible positivity, strength, grace, dignity and a sense of calm. Sadly however Jen passed away on the 14th November 2015.
The concept behind ‘Rock Off MND’ was originally conceived by Jen, and we know people will support this great initiative to help work towards finding a cure for this devastating disease. Through Jen’s inspiration we are determined to raise as much money as possible through ‘Rock Off MND’, with all net proceeds being donated to vital MND research.
Please join us for a fantastic night of entertainment or donate generously in support of this great cause.
