Roy Taylor was a singer and bass player with the band Jump the Gun who represented Ireland in the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest. Almost thirty years to the day of taking to the famed Eurovision stage Roy was given the diagnosis of MND. However, he has decided to not let MND have it all its own way as he is now putting all his energy into raising funds and awareness for Research Motor Neurone.

Together with his family and friends, they have launched ‘Watch Your Back MND’ to raise funds required to develop new effective treatments for MND, fund more inclusive, better-designed clinical trials for MND and support research into developing more objective outcome measures to allow for more accurate measurement of disease progression and treatment efficacy.
