Gordon, MND patient, campaigner and MND Scotland Trustee, said, “I am absolutely delighted to win this award and would like to dedicate it to everybody who is fighting Motor Neurone Disease. I could not have done this alone. I am immensely grateful to everybody who has got behind my campaign, including all of Scotland’s party leaders who have united on this issue. Our next challenge is to ensure pre-election promises are kept, starting with the creation of three research PhDs into MND. The sooner they start, the sooner we can find a cure and start saving lives.”
Lucy said, “I would like to say a huge thank you to my family and friends for supporting me through everything, I know it’s not been easy. Thank you to everyone in my community who’s supported me and kept me going. I hope this shows everyone with MND or a terminal illness that you can still have a life after diagnosis. I’d like to dedicate this award to my friend Spirit who passed away recently, I miss you.”
Update: Gordon sadly passed away at the age of 31 in February 2017.
