It’s not often that you come across a website and think wow this guy is amazing and it puts all your moans and groans about everyday life to shame. Patrick the Optimist, as he calls himself is dying of Motor Neurone Disease but is determined to be as optimistic about life as he can. He records videos of himself, his life, the inventions he creates with his dad to aid his life and also aims to paint 100 portraits of incurable optimists. the portraits are all of people with MND or in someway connected to the disease and they are good even though he says it becomes increasingly difficult to paint.

Please take a look at Patricks website and if you have blog write about it or tweet about it and spread the word to raise awareness of his cause. I think it is an amazing project .
