Motor neurone disease (MND) is a hurdle that singer Bryan Frost has continued to overcome, with the sufferer still singing six years after his initial diagnosis.
The 66-year-old is now unable to use his arms and legs but continues to indulge in his passion for vocals, reforming his rock and roll band The Ravons to raise money for the MND Association and the Rowans Hospice, according to the Portsmouth News.
Mr Frost was handsomely rewarded at a south coast awards ceremony too, picking up the Best Volunteer prize at the We Can Do It Awards to congratulate him for his hard efforts and charitable ways.
He said: "When I was being wheeled down to the stage I felt like I was on cloud nine. It felt like a dream.
"I thought the night was fantastic, I can't believe I have won."
The MND Association, which is supported by Mr Frost, was formed in 1979 and has 1,500 volunteers and 120 paid staff to spread the word about the condition.
