    Story

    Stu Carmichael is a military veteran of multiple tours of Iraq and Afghanistan serving in both REME as a recovery mechanic and 9 Para Sqn Royal Engineers. Stu was an extremely fit, motivated young family man who has now sadly been diagnosed with motor neuron disease. Motor neurone disease (MND) is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. There's no cure for MND, but there are treatments to help reduce the impact it has on a person's daily life. Some people live with the condition for many years. MND can significantly shorten life expectancy and, unfortunately, eventually leads to death. Stu has now embarked on a medical trial involving pioneering stem cell treatment to aid his condition and hopefully it will help other sufferers of this debilitating illness. This treatment will not come cheap as I am sure you can imagine, so any amount large or small will be much appreciated to help Stu, his wife and 3 daughters. Thank you for taking the time out to read my page, Cheers Mac.

      Absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of support received so far, thank you so much. For me it just goes to show how well respected and how much of a legend Stu is. When I first started I thought my target was a bit ambitious but now I really believe we can achieve it. Please keep sharing. Mac
