A 24-YEAR-OLD father-to-be diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease is determined to complete his lifetime’s ambitions in the time he has left.

Jonathan Price, from Redditch, is eager to tick things off from his bucket list and spend as much time doing fun things as he possibly can.

His sister Abbie has set up a JustGiving page so that family, friends and strangers can help Jonathan reach his goals.

She said: “With him being so young we were not expecting to be told the bad news by doctors.

“But now that we have been I think it’s important we make his life as relaxed and enjoyable as it possibly can be.

“Most of the money raised will be given to Jonathan but part of it is going to the MND Association.”

Jonathan will attempt to get as much done before the arrival of his baby boy in the summer.

While the situation is incredibly uncomfortable for Jonathan and his girlfriend Holly to deal with, they are both trying to remain positive.

Abbie added: “Living with MND is very difficult.

“To see such an amazing, smiley person be put through this is heartbreaking for us all.”

If you or a loved one is suffering with MND, they may find www.mndassociation.org has useful information.
