Brothers with rare brain disease move to bigger home
Two brothers from Lincolnshire who have a rare degenerative brain disease have finally moved into a bigger house in Hull after living in a one-bed flat with their parents.
Last year, Michael, 42, and Matthew Clark, 39, both from Lincoln, were living normal lives. They have since been diagnosed with a terminal condition called Leukodystrophy, where the coatings that insulate human nerve fibres gradually disappear, affecting speech, hearing, sight and brain activity.
The illness has meant the brothers have regressed into a child-like state and need round-the-clock care from their parents.
