Jason Bowen’s Motor Neurone Disease Treatment

Donation protected
Jason Bowen is a 50 year old ex professional footballer from Merthyr, now living in Langstone, Newport. He’s the son of Terry and Louise, brother of Ricky, husband to Hayley, father to Jaye, Sam and Theo and Daddo to Carter.

In March 2021 he was given the devastating Motor Neurone Disease diagnosis after feeling weakness and twitching in his arm. Sadly, Hayley’s mum passed away from this cruel disease 15 years ago.

Motor Neurone Disease is a Neuro Degenerative Disease (NDD) which essentially means Jason’s central nervous system is unable to send signals to his motor neurones, which are critical to be able to move limbs and control movement. There is no cure for MND.

When we first discovered that Jason had MND tears were shed, anger expressed, and a feeling of total and utter despair set in.

However, despite such negative emotions and experiences, these past 18 months since diagnosis have also shown us the power of positivity, friendship, love and community as friends, family and colleagues have all pulled together to help.

Jason’s family’s attitude is amazing. They are strong, loving and supportive. They are not giving up and looking for any treatments that will help Jason now and in the future.

The main objective of our fundraising is to provide financial support to cover Jason’s ongoing medical costs. These include holistic treatments, supplements, daily living aids, hydrotherapy and Specialist Neuro physiology at the wonderful Morrello Clinic in Langstone. This will also enable us to explore new avenues to help Jason and his family.

Thank you for reading Jason’s story and any support you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
