Stuart Acaster was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in 2016. Everyone who knows Stuart agrees he lives life in the fast-lane. From running a successful furniture making business to travelling the world or tearing around on motorcycles, for this fast-paced adrenaline junkie, this news has been a real bolt-out-of-the-blue.
Already within such a short space of time, Stuart's life has changed dramatically. No longer able to run, recent months have seen him having to give up his motorbikes, his business and his much loved camper van.
So it's a time for the rest of us to get up and do something to support the amazing people who are now helping provide assistance for Stuart; namely the West Sussex South MND Association.
First up, is a cycle ride from London to Brighton on 18th June 2017.
Close friends and family are cycling to start to raise awareness and much needed funds to help combat this progressive disease with no known cure.
Go Team Stuart!
