Call for more MND nursing specialists
Gordon Aikman was just 29 and on a stellar career path as Director of Research for the Better Together campaign when he was diagnosed with a serious illness. Doctors told him he had motor neurone disease. There is no cure.
Gordon knows he has limited time, but he's decided to use what time he does have to campaign. He's launched Gordon's Fight Back, a campaign which calls, amongst other things, for an end to councils charging dying people for care -- and for the NHS to fund specialist MND nurses, which are currently paid for by charity.
Emma Ailes has been to meet some of the dedicated fund raisers who help pay for those services.
