Brave farmer John deserves help in his battle against MS

Editor's Viewpoint

Fate deals some people very challenging hands. John McNaughton, a Co Antrim farmer, suffers from a progressive form of multiple sclerosis, and his best hope of living long enough to see his children grow up is pioneering stem cell therapy performed in Mexico.

Just 43, he now uses a wheelchair and his eldest child, 13-year-old Shea, effectively runs the farm.

So far the family has raised £34,000 of the £65,000 required for the treatment that could arrest the disease.

Time is not on his side, but he is hoping that the tremendous generosity already shown towards him continues. He deserves this chance.
