That depends on what MND he has, what his other health problems are, how advanced his MND disease is etc.

The best thing to do would be to gather up copies of all your friends medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that your friend could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

I am sure that there is a such a center in Hong Kong.
