Melbourne Doctor bottles Courage
Melbourne Doctor Ian Davis, who works as a Haematology Registrar at Peter Mac, was given the devastating news last September that he was suffering from the incurable Motor Neuron Disease.

The progressive neuro-degenerative disease attacks the nervous system and leads to the weakening and wasting of muscles, loss of mobility in the limbs and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.
There is currently no effective treatment and Dr Davis has been told by doctors he has 2 to 3 years to live.
“This is and has been a tough process on myself and my loved ones, but I've decided to live with MND rather than die from it” Dr Davis told Justin Smith on the 3AW Morning Program.
To help raise funds and awareness for the MND research, Dr Davis has teamed up with a Melbourne microbrewery called Cavalier for a unique project.
They will work together to develop the fittingly named Courage Ale with money raised going toward the MND Association of Victoria and the MND and Me Association.
“I had a very exciting meeting on Tuesday and I thought that they were just going to help us get out one batch of around about 1000 Liters but after the meeting, they’ve locked in for the long haul,”
“They are planning on doing this for years, and continue to support MND” Dr Davis said.
The beer is due to be released to the public in late November.
youre a wanker nick, you don't like it when someone disagrees with you ....that guy who told you to get stuffed, you deserved it, he tried hard to get a point and he was polite to tell you that he wasn't personal to you, but in the next line you decided to tell him (in a way) that you "don't like him", no wonder he "arked up" then you back pedalled you pussy / wanker. (oh I better be so careful with my choice of words, incase I offend some friggin group)
oh, and get original with your toothless collingwood fans jokes, just another wanker on the collingwood bashing bandwagon....hilarious coming from a Dees supportermicka Sunday 9 September, 2012 - 11:47 AM
Dr Ian, have you looked at CCSVI? It has provided promising results for MS, Parkingson & even ALS?TTan Sunday 9 September, 2012 - 1:19 AM
That's fantastic news! I have a team running in the Melbourne Marathon raising money for MND on October 14. Maybe we could all have a beer after the run!Lisa Saturday 8 September, 2012 - 2:19 PM
Good on doc and the brewery for helping to raise awareness of this terrible disease for which there is no cureColin pianta Tuesday 4 September, 2012 - 2:24 PM
Can you please let us know whether Tom Elliott will continue to employ his wife, aunty and father during his drive time program. I used to listen to his weekend programs until he brought his whole family. Please make him promise that this will not happen in his drive time slot as it will be a mass exodus from your station.Josephine Green Monday 3 September, 2012 - 2:15 PM
