Aussie neurologists take the ice challenge

Brave Australian neurologists and researchers are joining in the ice bucket challenge, helping to raise millions of dollars for motor neurone disease (MND).

Dr Robert Henderson of Queensland did it in memory of an inspirational patient he says would have done it “a hundred times over”.

“Neurologists see MND as a difficult disease. So this challenge is a bit of fun and supporting a good cause. Everyone knows it’s a disease that needs more research and awareness.”

He and his colleagues now have something in common with Nicole Kidman and Homer Simpson,
