Dr. Ian Davis, the 4f0-year-old FightMND campaigner, said farewell to his son in a heartbreaking Facebook post hours before his life support was turned off.


He thanked his family, friends, and followers for their support and asked them to continue the fight without him. Davis added:

"I will leave this broken body with a full heart. Please tell my boy I love him and I’m so proud to be his dad. This photo taken yesterday is our final moment together."

He also asked his followers to send an email message to his young son so that he could learn more about his father.


Davis began the campaign a few years ago to raise awareness for motor neuron disease. Donations he received went towards research and the development of a cure.

He was able to make considerable progress, thanks to his medical background and experience. The foundation's chairman explained:

"Since the Foundation was established following Ian’s own diagnosis, his tireless work, passion and commitment to the ongoing fight to find a cure has impacted and inspired people affected by MND worldwide."


He added that among Davis' many achievements, the creation of the inaugural Australasian Motor Neurone Disease Symposium stands out.

It was held back in March 2018, and more than 400 delegates from all over the world attended "with the joint intent to create a world free from MND."


Another story that is sweeping across the internet is the heartbreaking moment when a teenage girl had to say goodbye to her boyfriend, and best friend before his life support was switched off.

The 16-year-old Blake Ward from Wales "got into difficulty while swimming in the sea during a family trip. He and his friends were rescued by the coast guard.


His girlfriend, Stephanie Ray, 15, shared a photo of their final moments and wrote on Facebook:

"We was (sic) told yesterday that Blake would never recover and his brain was to damaged and we had to make the hard decision of turning his machine off and let him go. Blake was someone special to me and we had something special and we will always have that. Me and Blake had our ups and downs but we always got through them."
