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

Alex, who wrote this just before he died of MND

Alex lost his life to motor neurone disease in March 2022. He wrote this message to you just before he died.

"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.

It felt like the biggest challenge we'd 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. Now, I can’t even walk. My arms and hands have become so weak that I need help to eat. I can’t work. I can’t get out of bed, wash, or dress myself.

MND has taken almost everything from me. By the time you read this, it will have taken my life too."

Motor neurone disease takes people's potential, dreams - and then their lives. Will you donate today to help beat MND?

“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?”
