Rob Burrow - BBC 2 - Monday 12th October 7:30
Rob Burrow - My Year with MND
Rugby league star Rob Burrow talks about his fight against motor neurone disease and how his rugby career has prepared him for the challenge.
Repeated BBC 1 Saturday
Watching the previews on BBC Breakfast this morning, this is going to be a difficult programme to watch. Its just so difficult to see how badly his health has been affected in such a short time. My heart goes out to him, his family, his friends and everybody that is suffering because of MND.
Just seen the short clip on website
How it has taken him so quickly it's so sad 😢
Now been moved till tomorrow evening, same time, to accommodate the Government press conference,
Didn't realise just how quickly it could strike - makes you realise how lucky most of us are.
I can only watch half a minute or so.
I watched this today. I always liked Rob Burrow as a player and it is so sad to see how this terrible illness has taken him over so quickly. Very sad.
I watched it on catch up. It is awful to see how much he has deteriorated in such a short space of time. It was very moving & very, very sad. Thoughts are with him & his family.
