Help for big Stu.

Stu Carmicheal is a military veteran of multiple tours of Iraq and Afghanistan serving in both REME as a recovery mechanic and 9 Para Sqn Royal Engineers. Stu was an extremely fit, motivated young family man who has now sadly been diagnosed with motor neuron disease. He has received little help from any service charity and has had to self fund extensive alterations to his house in preparation of his condition deteriorating in the future. Motor neurone disease (MND) is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. There's no cure for MND, but there are treatments to help reduce the impact it has on a person's daily life. Some people live with the condition for many years. MND can significantly shorten life expectancy and, unfortunately, eventually leads to death. Stu has now embarked on a medical trial involving pioneering stem cell treatment to aid his condition and hopefully it will help other sufferers of this debilitating illness. This treatment will not come cheap as I am sure you can imagine, so any amount large or small will be much appreciated to help Stu, his wife and 3 daughters. Please dig deep and share far and wide.
