DROITWICH’S ‘MND Warrior’ John Adams is holding his latest fund-raiser over Easter to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease Research.
John was a very active man when he received his diagnosis five years ago.
He was told his life expectancy was between 12 and 18 months but vowed never to give up and, as well as battling the disease on a daily basis since.
He launched a fund-raiser – making Christmas gift tags – in November with a view to raising £300 and MND awareness.
Since then he has held several other drives for the charity, including a Christmas bauble activity, a hand press challenge and one for Valentine’s Day.
His fund-raising is now up to more than £12,500.
Even though he has faced many setbacks and he is now unable to walk, speak, eat or drink and has limited use of his hands, he has continued his extraordinary quest.
On Easter Sunday he will be in Droitwich High Street on his mobility scooter and dressed as the ‘MND Bunny’ giving out chocolate eggs to children. He has worked hard to get more than 300 Easter eggs donated and wants to get them to as many children as possible.
His daughter Helen said: “After all the Easter bunny doesn’t want to be taking any Easter eggs home.”
