Alistair Banks

I was saddened by news of the death of Alistair Banks, who was living with MND. His was the face of the MND Association's Incurable Optimism campaign from 2011. I had the pleasure of meeting him only once, at a Reception in Westminster to mark the exhibition of paintings created by another Incurable Optimist, Patrick Joyce.

Alistair was 40 and was diagnosed three years ago. He was married, with two young children.  A talented musician, he wrote and recorded an album before MND stopped him from making music. 

Our thoughts are with his wife and family.
