I'm dying. And fast.
That – in short – was what my doctor told me when I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. It’s not the news you expect when you are 29 years old.
MND is a rare, progressive and debilitating disease. It has lead to and muscle wasting and weakness. I can no longer walk, eat, drink or breathe without help.
There is no cure. Soon it will kill me. That’s why I am doing all I can while I can to raise money for MND Scotland: a great charity that funds research into the disease.
It’ll be too late for me, but we can and we must find a cure for the next generation.
With your help I can turn a negative into a positive. Please dig deep and donate what you can today. It is quick and easy to donate and 100% of your donation will be spent on cutting-edge research.
