Neale Daniher Wife Jan Daniher Supports Him In Dealing With Motor Neurone Disease
Neale Daniher's wife Jan Daniher was a constant support for him in dealing with Motor Neurone disease. The pair married on Australia Day, which was a significant event in Daniher's life.
Jan was from a Uniting Church family, and Danihers were devout Catholics. As a result, they got married at a non-denominational place of worship.
The couple is blessed with a daughter Bec Daniher. "The Danihers: The Story of Football's Favourite Family" portrays the story of Neale and his relationship with his relatives.
‘When all is said and done, much more is said than done’… unless you’re Neale Daniher and his amazing family. Neale’s fight with ‘The Beast’ that is MND is an inspiration to us all. Please just make him ‘Australian of the Year’, everyone buy a beanie, help find a cure. @FightMND pic.twitter.com/4G7pl8yveP— Darren Chester MP (@DarrenChesterMP) June 9, 2022
Moreover, in his latest book, When All is Said and Done, AFL star Neale Daniher addresses the difficult issues of motor neuron illness and death.
Although Mr. Daniher refers to it as "The Beast," most Australians refer to it as motor neuron disease. The Ungarie-born AFL hero was diagnosed with the incurable disease that claimed the lives of two Australians every day in 2013.
He has now collaborated with writer Warwick Green to recount his experience in the book When All is Said and Done, which was published last month.
Mr. Daniher told The Daily Advertiser that the book came to him as he was sitting down to compose a letter to his future grandkids. There were none when he began, but father-of-four Mr. Daniher is now a grandpa to two grandchildren.
"I wanted my grandkids to know a little bit about their grandfather. I knew very little about my grandparents "he remarked.
"Back in my grandparents' day, you didn't discuss much yourself. But I was always curious about what their lives were like, so I decided to create a book so that my grandkids might learn about my life.
"I definitely didn't expect I'd write a book when I was initially diagnosed with MND." But I've lived longer than everyone predicted."
Mr. Daniher's book is a three-year undertaking, and he was in Wagga this week with his wife Jan on their way to Ungarie to see his mother Edna and other members who still live in the area.
