The Lewy Body Society

Virtually unknown but not uncommon, Lewy Body disease is the second most frequent cause of age-related neurodegenerative dementia. Accurate diagnosis is essential for successful treatment. The purpose of the Lewy Body Society is to raise awareness of this terrible disease amongst the public and the medical profession.

Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page in memory of Ian Martin. 


Ian was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease around Christmas 2010, with a subsequent diagnosis of Lewy Body disease shortly after. The effects of Parkinson's are fairly well documented but Lewy Body disease is much less well known and any contributions will go towards helping to fund vital research and raising awareness of what is a cruel and debilitating disease.

Lewy Body disease is a form of dementia and affects approximately 100,000 people in the UK. More information on the Lewy Body Society can be found here http://www.lewybody.co.uk/
