Hi, my name is Andrew Knowlman. I am a husband to Jane and a father to two wonderful kids – Sebastian and Valentina. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had a great career, which has taken me and my family to live in various parts of the world. I have loved learning different languages and learning about different cultures.
In 2015 my world changed when, aged 47, I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, as it is also known).
I have dedicated this website/blog to my experiences of living with MND / ALS. I hope it will give some insight for those unfamiliar with the illness and I hope it will provide some comfort for those who are experiencing similar challenges.
I can also be found on social media. Links are:
