Dad and the Grand Children in 2008

MND is a terrible disease that 5 people in the UK die from every day.  Dad was diagnosed January 2008 and died August 15th, 2009.  He was remarkably brave and selfless throughout his illness, and I will be forever in admiration of him.

The last 2 years have been incredibly tough for my family. I want to thank all our wonderful friends who have been and continue to be a great source of support. I also want to thank all the fantastic health care professionals that worked so hard to make dad’s last days as comfortable as possible.

I am trying to raise £3500 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).  The MNDA help families affected by MND and also fund research into finding a cure.

Any donation, large or small will be brilliant. You can donate online by going to www.justgiving.com/dareboy

Thank you so much
