As some people will know, David Hart who had A-T died at the end of August of pancreatic cancer. The son of the A-T Society’s counsellor Helen Hart and her husband John, David lived a remarkably full and active life.
Like his brother Andrew, who died some years ago, David had the IVS40 mutation which occurs in more than 20 people with A-T in the UK and Ireland, and gives a more slowly developing ‘variant’ form of the condition.
In spite of his disabilities, David had a wide range of interests and was involved in many different activities, so much so that he was honoured with an obituary in the Scotsman, which you can read here http://bit.ly/2xjAjEj.
The thoughts and sympathies of people across the A-T community are with his family, and we hope that this recognition of David’s achievements will be of comfort to them.
