Geoff Burrow joined Rob, former Bradford City footballer Stephen Darby and other campaigners to call on the government to invest £50m in research into Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
He told BBC Radio Leeds: "It was an absolutely brilliant day - tiring, but brilliant. And to see the MPs and the fellow sufferers with MND all smiling, it really was a fabulous day."
Rob was diagnosed in 2019, and since then has worked to raise the profile of efforts to combat the disease.
Geoff added: "You don't realise how brutal MND is until it happens to you or a family member."
