I'm sure most of us have been affected, or know someone affected by alzheimer's. One of the hardest things is arguably watching a loved one loose their sense of self, identity and personality, whilst all you can do is idly and helplessly watch this nightmare unfold before your eyes. Feeling as though they have been taken from you even before they are gone.
Please help this brilliant charity continue to research and help the thousands of victims and families this affects!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Over 850,000 people live 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 pays for 1 hour of pioneering dementia research.
* £100 could provide the tools for scientists to map 10,000 genes in minute detail, identifying targets for the development of new treatments.
* £500 will cover the cost of a sensitive brain scan for a patient involved in a research study, tracking the effectiveness of new drug treatments, improving diagnosis and better understanding how diseases like Alzheimer’s wreak their havoc in the brain.
