Catherine McGaw-Pratt

I am Ian Pratt’s wife and on a day in September of 2012 our lives changed forever when the Professor spoke the words that confirmed “in her heart of hearts” that he had Motor Neurone Disease.

I have since then watched how this disease has changed my husband, taking its toll on all of us as it progresses, gradually taking away his ability to walk, to talk clearly, to be able to feed himself, to be able to give our daughter and I much needed hugs.

I understand how this disease impacts a family as we live it every day and if we can change the world and put a smile on the face of an MND Warrior or help an MND Angel’s family then the Ian Pratt MND Foundation will have done its job.© Ian Pratt MND Foundation – 2020
