    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Anyone lucky enough to meet my mum knows the love and happiness she brings. She has a great attitude to life, and knows that laughter is the best way through it! She’s my best friend and has always kept me on the right path. She worked for the NHS for over 25 years and has always fought for peoples rights and was a keen Union rights member throughout her career, often caring for disgruntled families in times of stress in the PAL's service.
    Over the past 3 years my mum has had some of the worst luck. It has been a struggle for me and my brother just to witness what my mum has gone through.
    In late 2014 my mum was making 40mile round trips every day to make sure her mother had the quality of care and a good standard of living before she sadly passed away.

    In 2015, and after 28 years my mum and dad split up. This may have been in part due to my grandmothers death which placed strain on the relationship. My mum, with no close friends in the area is often home alone whilst myself and brother are at work. We make the effort to visit daily but sometimes it is difficult.

    Earlier this year, we had my mum go to see a Psychiatrist as we noticed some strange behavior occurring. Forgetting words and objects were quite common and stressful for my mum. After some tests, and an MRI scan we were given the diagnosis of Frontotemporal Dementia. This kind of dementia is rare, even rarer in my mums case as she is only 66 years old. We have been told there is no cure and that my mums health will deteriorate rapidly over the next few years. Mums way of life has changed dramatically within the last few months. Frequent visits from nurses as well as having her driving license revoked

    Any donations received will go to making my mum more comfortable at home and help her have some form of freedom. This would go to day trips to art galleries which she loves! Donations would also go to small home improvements to make life easier.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

        Hi, I'm Ryan. I am the loving son of a mother who is suffering with Frontotemporal dementia (FTD). If anybody wants to discuss anything to do with FTD dementia I will happily share what I have researched. Thanks for viewing this page and even considering donating.
