Yes it has caused quite a phenomenon around the world & certainly has gone viral. I can say that I was nominated by a work colleague & close friend to take up the Ice Bucket Challenge & I accepted it. I have personally known a few people affected by Motor Neuron Disease & its awful to see them slowly deteriorate.
MND affects a person’s ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. They literally choke on their own saliva & eventually their muscles become so weak that they stop breathing.
Luckily for me we’ve had a week of 20+ degree temperatures so I didn’t mind taking up the challenge. The only thing that concerned me about the challenge was I had just gone to the hairdresser & had my curly hair straightened. I don’t often wear my hair straight as its too much hassle to blow dry it that way & I don’t actually own a pair of straighteners. So knowing that my perfectly straight hair would get ruined I wore a shower cap. So if you see video of someone wearing a pink shower cap-that’ll be me.
Have any other MoM’s been game to take up the Ice Bucket Challenge?
