Aikman also posted a heart-breaking message on his website prior to his death. He wrote: “I’m dying. And fast. That – in short- was what my doctor told me when I was diagnosed with motor neuron disease.
“It’s not the news you expect when you are 29 years old… There is no cure.
“Soon it will kill me. I don’t want pity. All I want is for you to take action to help find a cure and fight for better care for people with MND.”
