This moving film follows Rob Burrow as he shows the same spirit in his fight against motor neurone disease as the one which made him a hugely admired rugby league star.
His family and friends – including former team mates Kevin Sinfield and Barrie McDermott – also give their moving insight into this remarkable man. Burrow was prompted to raise awareness for research into the condition, including regular appearances on BBC Breakfast, after a meeting with former Scotland rugby union legend and fellow motor neurone disease sufferer, Doddie Weir.
Voting closes on Friday 4th June and we invite you to tell all your friends, family and colleagues to join you in voting for Rob’s documentary.
