Belinda Chuah


raised so far


of $470 goal

My pledge time is: Fri 24th June 4-7pm

My name is Belinda, I am 43 years old, the proud mother of Judd, stepmother of Maraeka and Jeshua, and loving wife of Andrew Pirola. On 4th May 2022, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with MND.

We are holding each other tight as we ride the waves of despair and terror that is the storm of MND. However, throughout this difficult journey, we also bear witness to the great depth of human compassion and kindness. We have been uplifted by the love, care and support of what I call the “layers of my onion”—my family, friends and the wider community around us. The show of support and countless messages of encouragement have hoisted us up, lifted our spirits and given us the strength to face this dreadful disease head-on. Whilst this disease is horrible it has elicited in others the best aspects of human nature. Unfortunately, a cure won’t be found in my lifetime but I am grateful for the wonderful support of MND Victoria who provide vital care, support, education and equipment to families such as ourselves. Thank you for your support!

Dear family, friends and community, a BIG thank you for the amazing generosity of each and every one of you to help us with this cause. We have been floored by the amazing show of support and love. I had a dreary day with a lovely OT discussing not-so-fun things like shower chairs, etc and to trudge out of that appointment and see the wave of support to this fundraiser was the best uplift! We read every single beautiful post and acknowledge your kindness. With much love Belinda, Andrew and Judd
