      Motor Nuerone Disease – It is an extremely degrading condition. Essentially it causes the death of neurones in the brain which help control our muscles. People are normally diagnosed by about mid-fifties. Eventually it leads to struggling to control muscles, inability to swallow and eventually breathing difficulties.

      Cystic Fibrosis – Another horrendous condition. Mucus lines the lungs and causes breathing difficulties. Sinus infections are common and it can lead to a poor quality of life. Life expectancy is mid-40s to fifties

      If I could cure something it would be infertility, I watch a lot of people get their heart broken because they can’t have babies, its also really sad that infertility is not even considered as a disease when it is.
      I would also want to cure cardiovascular diseases if possible ie diseases that affect the heart and lungs.
