Motor Neurone Disease Association
Having been diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) in 2018 which turned her world upside down, Josephine was due some luck. On a low day she thought ‘what have I got to lose’, so reached for her tablet to see if she was entitled to claim mis-sold PPI, leading her to the Allay website.
“This couldn’t have come at a better time” Josephine said. “After an awful year and having to give up my job and driving because of my condition, I really needed some good news. It couldn’t have been easier too, all I did was share a few details with Allay and they took care of everything.”
Determined to enjoy life after her diagnosis and to give her a break from medical trials to help find a cure for MND, Josephine booked a cruise with her money. Along with her family she set sail around the Mediterranean, and they had such a good time they’re already booked on their next cruise around the Canary Islands.
“For the first time ever we had a bit of extra money in the bank which was brilliant. We’ve always wanted to cruise but I didn’t know if my health would stop me, however my consultant’s advice was to enjoy life, so I booked up! I had a wonderful time seeing the world with my husband, brother and sister-in-law. Our sons have been treated too. But most of all the money has made life a bit more bearable.”
Allay’s directors were so inspired by Josephine’s story, they offered to donate £1,000 to the humanitarian charity of her choice. She chose the research arm of the MND Association, a cause close to her heart which has supported her throughout her diagnosis journey and where she is going through her trials.
