Story

Hi people, thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This year I am finally getting around to running the Great North run. I shall be running it for The Lewy Body Society. Now i'm not great with words but the reason I am running for this cause is that Its something that affects my dad who is my absolute hero and a true inspiration to me and our family.

 Lewy body dementia is not a well known disease but actually it is the second most common form of dementia. It is caused when protein deposits called Lewy bodies develop in nerve cells in the brain regions involving thinking, memory and movement. It is a horrific disease with some horrendous symptoms.

Now my main aim is to raise awareness of this little known disease and if we can raise some funds along the way to help with research into this horrific condition and maybe one day find a cure then I am willing to do whatever it takes. Thanks very much for coming to see my page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity.
