Story

My mother-in-law, Jen, has Alzheimers and seeing her succumb to this disease over the last five years has been heart breaking, especially for my wife, Wendy and her sister,  Sue. Whenever they are with their mother they see her in body but not in mind.  Here are some stats:

  • Over 850,000 people are living with Dementia in
    the UK and that number is rapidly rising.
  • At £24 billion each year, dementia costs the UK
    economy more than cancer and heart disease combined but over two thirds of the
    care for Dementia patients is paid for by themselves or their family.
  • £20 could fund one hour of vital research
  • £50 could provide access to specialist equipment
    for studying cells
  • £120 could support complex protein analysis
  • £300 could pay for a genetic test to help
    identify risk gene
