Story

#sharetheorange

A brain affected by Alzheimer’s weighs 140g less than a healthy brain. That’s about the weight of an orange.

Too many people still think dementia is just a natural part of ageing, which means they don't realise that it is something we could, one day, defeat.

850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia.

The cost to the UK economy is £26 billion, more than cancer and heart disease combined.

1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will die with dementia 

Only research has the power to beat dementia.
