Story

Very sadly at the end of 2017 my wonderful dad Mike Hoare passed away after an incredibly cruel fight with Motor Neuron Disease. Unfortunately my dad had the type of MND which effects the Frontal Temporal Lobes. This means we had to nurse him, as he lost a lot of the personal characteristics, not just physically, but of his personality, which made him who he was. It was a couple of years which really tore away at my family. But through all this we were supported by the wonderful staff at the MND Association and Salford Royal Hospital, who we can't thank enough. We also took part in research funded by the MND association at Salford Royal, which is identifying the genes which cause MND. This research is already making many breakthroughs in creating gene therapies which could one day give effective treatments for MND. Obviously very personally to me this could mean that my son Alfs family, could escape the same heartbreak that we have all suffered. Please donate to this wonderful charity which is doing such incredible groundbreaking work, so that they can stop this disease. Thank you.
