A student nurse from Inverness is helping to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) after becoming the youngest sufferer in the Highlands.
MND is a rapidly progressing terminal illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. Sufferers can lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided.
Sheree Gregg , 28, who lives on the Black Isle, was first diagnosed with the terminal illness in March following 16 months of gruelling tests.

OBD has been granted a substantial funding award from Innovate UK to develop and validate diagnostic, prognostic and predictive EpiSwitch™ biomarkers for ALS.
