Grant is my son. Aged 41 and shortly to be married, he suffers from a rare illness called multifocal motor neuropathy. This is a paralysing disease about which very little is known. In order to keep the paralysis at bay he has chemotherapy one week in every eight. This is to knock out his over active immune system and as you can imagine, it leaves him feeling ill and at a very low ebb for the next couple of weeks. He works extra hours each week to enable him to have time off work for chemo, and has an understanding employer. In spite of everything and bearing in mind he has limited training time in between his treatment, he raises money for charity by doing endurance rides on his bike and recently cycled in relay with a friend from London to Paris in 24 hours. They raised nearly £2,000 for the charity 'Scope'. A couple of years ago, to everyone's amazement, he ran the London Marathon and raised several thousand pounds. He has cycled from Bristol to London, London to Paris, the Scottish Etape, and Land's End to John O'Groats, to name a few - always for charity. I am extremely proud of him and his achievements. It would be great if what he manages to achieve was recognised, as he never complains - he just gets on with life.
