[91] w/ Doddie Weir

The Michael Anthony Show

This week on The Michael Anthony Show, the inspirational Doddie Weir shares his story that has seen the former British and Irish Lion fight the incurable Motor Neurons Disease for the past four years. Retiring from international rugby with sixty one caps in 2000, the six foot six Weir was enjoying his new life both professionally and as a father, until a series of twitches and continuous muscle wasting sent the Scotsman to his doctor.Informed that his days of walking would be over within a year, before his speech and entire body would eventually give in to the unforgiving disease, the legendary second row was not expected to see 2020. But Weir knows only how to fight, and as he continues to not only walk and talk, the foundation that began under his name in 2017 continues to strive, raising just short of five million pounds with the goal of finding out more about this mysterious condition.In this Episode, Weir opens up about the day to day struggles of living with an illness that does not leave survivors, and as life becomes more and more challenging for him physically, mentally the former Newcastle Falcon is as strong as ever. Hope is something that Doddie will not lose, and self-victimisation has never been an option. Although the underdog, this "mad giraffe" will never stop competing.Listen to Episode 91 now available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and more.MA Show.Support the show

Episode 3: Doddie Weir


For this episode, I made a special trip up to Edinburgh to visit the Scottish legend Doddie Weir in his own home. Whilst Doddie is known to many for his rugby career, gaining over 60 caps for the Scottish National Team, most will know him for his drive and motivation to raise awareness about Motor Neurone Disease. Doddie was diagnosed with MND nearly 3 years ago, but Doddie hasn't let this stop him being positive and an inspiration to many. Doddie and his foundation have raised over £5 million and it is still rising every day.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/headstrongpodcast. Hosted on Acast.
