I don't want the right to die

Michael Wenham

Michael Wenham tells The Independent about his determination to keep on living life, despite suffering with degenerative Motor Neurone Disease. Diagnosed in 2002 with a rare, slower form of Motor Neurone Disease, Michael has always intended on not giving up.

In Michael's book, 'My Donkey Body' he clearly and compassionately describes the process of being diagnosed with the terminal disease, and the struggle of living with the condition. This truthful account of living with a terminal disease highlights the need to provide good support to those who face the struggle against Motor Neuron Disease. Michael is also a strong opponent of legalising assisted suicide.
