Lucy was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) when she was 19. Since then she has been working her way through her bucket list, writing about it on her website Lucy’s Fight, and raising money for MND Scotland.
You do loads of good stuff, raising money for MND Scotland through your campaign Lucy’s Fight – what inspired you to set it up?
After being diagnosed with MND I took to the internet to discover what my new diagnosis entailed. I soon discovered that there wasn’t much information about my new illness so I started Lucy’s Fight as a way to share my story with the world.
Your fundraising work is obviously very personal to you, how has that helped, or do you think it’s hindered you in any way?
It’s definitely helped. It’s given me something to concentrate all my energy towards and fundraising for MND Scotland allows me to do my part towards finding a cure.
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever received?
I’m going to go with a quote as I feel like advice only makes sense to the person receiving it. My favourite quote is “never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” It reminds me not to let fear and emotions get in the way of achieving my goals.
If you do one good thing today what will it be?
Hopefully make a stranger smile and somebody I love laugh.
