New group member

December 2011

wyatt_sarahHello I’m Sarah; a photographer living in Derbyshire and the newest member of the Research Advisory Group.

My lovely Dad had MND and sadly passed away on October 6th 2011 after a valiant fight against the disease.  I joined just before Dad passed away and I’m so grateful that I had the chance to tell him about the group.  Although Dad had lost his speech he was still able to smile and put his thumb up in approval at me joining.  I told Dad that I was going to play a small part in finding a cure for MND and I’m not about to let him down.

The Group have made me feel so welcome and its brilliant to see how enthusiastic and positive everyone is. The SITraN scientists have made great progress in MND research already and this gives me hope that one-day a cure will be found.
