A few months ago, out of the blue, Gavin (Gavin Webb https://m.facebook.com/gavinwebbMNDlivingwithaterminaldisease/
) who works for me at WestSide was diagnosed with MND. The Doctor’s advice is that he has less than a year to live. This clearly is not only devastating for him but a real shock for all who know him. I knew almost nothing about MND and as you read more about the disease it is clear that it is a poorly understood disease and also a horrible disease.
So I immediately agreed to raise money for MND and Me by jumping off the Goodwill Bridge on 25th May! I say immediately because I knew if I thought about it for too long I would back out- I am not brave about heights! MND and Me both give amazing support to people like Gavin with MND and their families but also support major research into the disease. I hope I can help in a small way to make life a little easier for MND sufferers like Gavin and also hopefully move closer to eradicating this disease.
