Tony Blair tribute to Gordon AikmanFriday, Feb 03, 2017 in Office of Tony Blair
I am immensely saddened to hear that Gordon Aikman has died. He was a truly vital and remarkable man and I am proud to have known him. Gordon showed tremendous courage and determination after he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. He refused to be defeated and instead campaigned tirelessly on behalf of fellow sufferers and wrote movingly about his own experiences in dealing with this terrible disease.
My heartfelt condolences go to Gordon’s husband, Joe, and their families and friends. It is a profound loss and he will be greatly missed.
