"I’ve been working with people who suffer from motor neuron disease [Hawking’s affliction],
and I’m one of the patrons of the MNDA, which is the British association. This disease has
been around for over a hundred years or longer, and we’re not any closer to finding a cure.
That has a lot to do with the fact that not many people have it, so pharmaceutical companies
won’t invest in research. [Recently] there was the Ice Bucket Challenge, and people were
critical of it because everyone was jumping on the bandwagon. But it was raising awareness.
I think the disease has a branding problem because it’s called different things, like motor
neuron disease, MND, in the UK, ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease..." - Eddie Redmayne
