Creighton was diagnosed in March 2017. He and his wife, Judy, set a goal that he would live to enjoy his 70th birthday - which he did. Creighton is able to live positively with his MND partly due to the support that comes from MND Victoria. It’s important to Creighton that he can still do things independently; like go out on his own in his power wheelchair and stay in touch with family through his iPad which fits comfortably on his tray table.
Creighton can do this because MND Victoria supplied him with a variety of mobility aids, including the power wheelchair, at no cost to him. The Association also supplied Creighton with an electric bed so he can have a good nights sleep, and a hoist that enables Judy to get him out of bed. It is because of these items that Creighton can remain living with Judy in their own home.
