Laugh To Cure MND: Serena Says Donate

Motor Neurone Disease has been hitting close to home in the tennis world - last year the ATP, this year the WTA. But with no known cause, effective treatment or cure, laughter can be the best medicine.

MELBOURNE, Australia - Last year, the tennis family lost Brad Drewett - the ATP World Tour's CEO - to Motor Neurone Disease. Now, the WTA's former Vice President of Player Relations and On Site Operations, Angie Cunningham, is trying to battle her way through the very same disease.

But with no known cause, effective treatment or cure, laughter can be the best medicine.

The Laugh To Cure Motor Neurone Disease campaign has been launched to not only raise awareness about the disease, but to raise money for research to help find a cure in a positive and uplifting way.

During this year's Australian Open, the tennis family is coming together and bring you fun videos of the players showing special skills, singing a song or just telling a story about the funniest thing that ever happened to them during their career. The videos will all be posted on the campaign's official website, www.laughtocuremnd.com, and the funniest ones will also air on Channel 7's Happy Slam coverage.

You can donate right on the campaign's website - all funds raised will be donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia, with the goal of $100,000 to fund a new research study.
