      Motor Neurone Disease Association

      • United Kingdom
      • Freelance
      • I directed, filmed and edited a documentary about 'Motor neurone disease'. People often worry about life and the things they don't have. This video makes you appreciate life and really shows you how lucky you are just to be healthy. Enduring motor neurone disease gives an insight into the daily struggles of this horrific disease. The documentary itself shows Steve Evans and his loving family. Instead of focusing solely on Steve it shows how the disease effects everyone around the sufferer. Thankyou to the Evans family for letting me share their story.
