Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My husband Allan Gilliver was diagnosed with vascular dementia and degenerative Alzheimer's disease in 2011 after 3 years of  visits to the Memory Assessment Centre. Over the years I have met some amazing women and men who all face the same challenges as I do with courage, sadness, frustration and, sometimes, anger at what has happened to our lives. It is such a cruel disease as it robs you of your future. You try and live well with it but sometimes it's impossible. You are no longer a wife, friend, lover, you become a carer. But, you care for the person you love even if they no longer realise it. You live with a sense of grief daily but you are grieving for a person who is still there. So much more needs to be done to try and find a cure.  We hope you can join us on our walk on 10th September at Lister Park, Manningham Lane. Registration is from 10am and the Walk starts at 11am. 3 times round the lake is 5k and it's all flat.
