Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

My story is close to my own heart with my grandmother suffering from Parkinson's disease and who is resident in a full time care facility, what prompted our family to enter the memory walk and fund raise for the Alzheimer's Society charity is much more associated with daily life with my wife's mum's condition of Alzheimer's and vascular dementia

With three children of our own all growing up it is painful to see and experience my mother in law deteriorate and become more child like every day, she has lost the ability to cook, clean, make any form of arrangement, take medication properly and even string a sentence together ... and therefore becomes more like a dependant child every day that passes, whilst at the same time having some realisations that it is all happening but yet has no idea why or what to do about it, the result of this is that my wife who once had her mother to talk to and engage with has now become almost a permanent carer to her like having another dependant child, for the rest of us as a family all we can do is watch it happen and offer support in any way we can but it is really difficult, our children see their mum otherwise occupied and not having enough time to spread around and I lose precious time with my wife and best friend in the whole world whilst she picks up the pieces

When this terrible condition started to become a realisation we knew virtually nothing about it however now we have learned that it can affect the young and perfectly healthy individuals as well as the elder generations, such a cruel and sad situation that hopefully one day a cure will be discovered for

This all prompted us to enter the event as a family and try and raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society charity, hopefully any contribution we can make will help them continue their efforts to provide help and support to those who need it, this also extends to the families that are close to it themselves like we are but also those that don't have close family support or in worse cases have nobody to turn to

So please donate if you can and if you can't that's also fine as even if this short story raises a small amount of awareness instead of funds to support this terrible condition even that alone will go some way towards understanding it more, please give as much or as little as you can in support of this well deserving charity

Thank you in advance
