Do Something from Optimism

This video is of Patrick, his family, and his quest to paint 100 portraits of incurable optimists before he dies.

I have motor neurone disease (MND). I’m gradually losing the ability to walk, talk, eat and breathe. I won’t see my daughter go to primary school and she won’t remember me. I am dying – MND is killing me.

I’m determined to use what’s left of my life and my diminishing artistic skill to encourage others to do something optimistic every day. MND may be incurable but I am an incurable optimist. I know that through optimism we will find the cure to MND.

Optimism - even for just a few moments a day - can create a chain of small actions that really can change the world. It's all that ever really ever has.
