I'm dying. And fast.
That – in short – was what my doctor told me when I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. It is not the news you expect when 29 years old.
MND is a progressive, neurodegenerative condition that eats away at your body until you can no longer walk, talk, eat or breathe for yourself.
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. 100% of your donation will be spent on cutting-edge research.

* UPDATE: You can now donate by text message. Text MNDS85 followed £1, £3, £5 or £10 to 70070 to donate. THANK YOU *
We will provide care and support to people with MND until a cure is found.
