Murray and MND - Can you help ?

Donation protected

My name is Tuesday Foster, I am writing this on behalf of Murray Chapman who I work with. He was sadly diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia and Motor Neurone Disease on 24th May 2024, the day he and his family’s life changed.

Murray lives at home with his wonderful caring wife Kathryn and their two charming sons Jake and Fraser. Unfortunately, their small family home is not accessible for the equipment that will be required for Murray in the coming weeks and months. We would appreciate any help towards making necessary costly changes – anything you donate is greatly received!

Since the diagnosis Murray has maintained a positive outlook with the support of his Family and Friends. However, Funds are required to aid his battle as working in his business will soon no longer be an option.

We have decided to set up this GoFundMe page for people to donate to help Murray sustain quality of life, eventual aids that will be needed for the home and transport etc. It will help the family enjoy the time they have together without the worry of day-to-day financial issues.

Murray has dedicated most of his life to helping others and 15 years ago became the founder of ‘A Passion to inspire’ A non-profit making, voluntary initiative developed to bring education and industry closer together supporting students with a passion for their chosen career. During this time Murray has also raised large amounts for different charities such as Teenage Cancer Trust and NSPCC. He is truly a phenomenal man who has continually put everyone before himself.

I don't think we can ever put into words, the feelings, the despair, the fear upon hearing the news on 24th May. Since then and over the last couple of weeks, the enormity of what this means for Murray and his family and the challenges all will face as this cruel disease takes hold is starting to become a reality. A reality they cannot hide or escape from but one they must meet head on by being brave together as a family and by allowing their family, friends and wider community to help in whatever way they can. Our hope for a cure one day will keep everyone going but for now, looking after Murray's mental health and wellbeing is paramount.

Thank you for taking time to read, and again anything you can donate is deeply appreciated.
