'It doesn't mean your life is over'

Mr Bellis is living with a rare degenerative disease called Spinocerobellar Ataxia. It is a hereditary disease which blocks communication between the brain and the spinal chord, causing a loss of physical control.

Invariably it leads to life in a wheelchair; there is no cure and more often than not it is fatal.

The symptoms first appeared 12 years ago while he was serving in the army.
