My story

[p]I am honoured to be running the London marathon on behalf of Ted Hawkins, who was the father of our very special friend, Sara Cops. After over two years of suffering, Ted lost his battle to Motor Neurone Disease in November 2017. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Sara’s family cannot thank the charity enough for the support they gave Ted through his fight.. Sara kindly gave us a few words below :[/p][p]"When my Dad was diagnosed with MND in July 2015 it was absolutely heartbreaking. We were however informed that the care package and support available to him was amazing. That came in the form of the MND Association. This Charity is quite incredible. They supported him in so many different ways. They stepped in and ensured NHS appointments were treated as urgent and even had some moved forward! They provided constant assessments to ensure he was as comfortable as possible throughout his deterioration. They made sure he had all the appropriate equipment available for him from wheelchairs to neck braces. They held support groups. They had people from the association pop round to have a chat and see how he was doing. They helped ensure he got all the benefits he should be recieving and put in place appropriate care packages.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Because of the MND Association my Dad never felt like he was alone. He knew if something wasn't working or he was worried about anything he could contact them and they would do their very best to rectify it as a matter of urgency.[/p][p][br][/p][p]MND is a frightening diagnosis to receive and as much as they couldn't fix it they did guide my dad through what the future would bring and how they could help make it that little bit better with their guidance and support. He was never ever just a number to them. They really did go above and beyond." [/p][p][br][/p][p]Any donation will be greatly appreciated [/p][p]much love [/p][p][br][/p][p]Chris x[/p]
