Stephen Darby battling motor neurone disease

Recommended Posts

On the news a second ago, was a segment where Doddie Wier, Rob Burrow and Stephen Darby (who played on loan at Notts in 2010/2011) spoke about their battle with MND (Motor neurone disease).

Motor neurone diesase is a rare condition that attacks the brain and it nerves. It slowly kills the person from the inside, taking away their speech and bodily functions. It's a saddening illness, which I have witnessed during my time working in a specialist care home for people with brain injuries.

It's good to see the three sufferers teaming up to promote awareness.

i liked watching him, thought he was a decent young player and he did well for bradford if my memory serves me correct. its sad to read things like this, at least the three of them are promoting awareness and reacting well.

Another illness that can only be managed but no treatment as such, good that they are speaking out about it.
