“It’s too late for you to save my life…”

Alex, who is dying from MND

"...but you could save others, and protect families like mine, by helping to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease."

In late 2018, my wife Laura and I stood together at the start line of the Transalpine Run. An epic 255km course lay ahead of us. Over the next seven days we’d be running over the toughest terrain either of us had ever seen.

At the time, it felt like the biggest challenge we would ever face together. We had no idea that soon after, we’d be told I was dying from Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

It was one of the last runs I ever did. Today, I can’t even walk. My arms and hands have become so weak that I need help to eat. I can’t use a computer to work. I can’t get out of bed by myself, I can’t wash, I can’t dress.

MND has taken almost everything from me. Soon, it will take my life too.

“And until we find a cure, we’ll need to keep providing life-changing support and practical advice to people diagnosed with this devastating disease, and their families. Will you help them with a donation too?”
