Our Dad was a serving soldier and officer in the British Army. He served 29 years and went on to work alongside the Army in Germany. He was enjoying retirement, when he reached the age of 65, but a month later he started to lose the strength in his arms. He was diagnosed with ALS aka Motor Neurone Disease or Lou Gehrig’s Diease / Man in the Barrel Syndrome. His form has taken away the use of his arms and we hope to slow the progression of his illness and reverse some of the damage done. We are raising money and our website www.savemydad.co.uk will be the focus of our fund raising activities.
