Acorns Ambassador Moin wins Courage Award

Moin refuses to let his daily problems and pain get in the way of fulfilling his dreams and ambitions.

“What I’m saying to everyone out there is to please make the most of your life and make the most of what you have.”

Acorns Ambassador Moin won Teenager of Courage at the Pride of Birmingham Awards for refusing to let his serious illness stop him campaigning to help others. Moin suffers from an agonising and rare genetic skin disorder, Epidermolysis Bullosa, which causes his skin to blister or bleed with the slightest knock.

Guests on the night celebrated Moin’s extraordinary courage with a standing ovation as he collected his award. The judges said: “The way he looks out for and helps other seriously ill children at the hospice is absolutely fantastic. He is an inspiration.”

Moin has been cared for at Acorns since he was 3 months old, now aged 17 he is an Acorns Ambassador, reaching out to inspire other children by offering advice and support. We have helped care for Moin and supported his family since he was a baby. This care would not be possible without your help.
