Sandie Youngson Exhibition at RCSEd aims to raise funds for My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, who fund research into motor neurone disease.

by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Coastlines and colour…… whether in Aberdeenshire, the Hebrides, North Island New Zealand, Nantucket Island Massachusetts, …. these were amongst the places that featured in her paintings , gave her inspiration, and fed her passion for art.

Sandie Youngson was a self-taught artist from north-east Scotland who, during her final illness with motor neurone disease, although no longer able to paint, still got and gave enormous pleasure in sharing her paintings with family, friends, and those who came to enjoy her exhibitions and those who visited her.

Much of her giving included donating her work to charities and her family (who live in the previously mentioned countries) have chosen My Name5 Doddie as the beneficiary of an exhibition of her paintings being held in the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. Sandie never played rugby, but she knew how to tackle motor neurone disease and knew that a team would be required to develop the research needed to be ultimately able to win the day with this illness.

Her husband, George, a retired paediatric surgeon in Aberdeen and previously council member and Vice President of RCSEd said “Sandie’s courage and spirit in coping with MND is well reflected in Doddie, his family, his team and supporters. The Foundation has shown the leadership and advocacy in promoting awareness and exploring new treatments that are so badly needed in an illness in which it has been so difficult to make progress. I’m enormously grateful to the college in allowing us to show Sandie’s paintings. If she could have known that her art could provide pleasure for some, at the same time supporting research into this awful condition, then she would have been thrilled”.
