To All My Friends & Family,
I've been around many elderly parents and grandparents of people I know over the past several months and it saddens me deeply to see so many of them lost and confused, not knowing where they are. They’ve lost their happy memories of their lives and their families, and are scared in a world of their own.
Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain and can affect anyone. There are currently over 750,000 people with dementia in the UK.
Dementia is terminal and there is no cure. One in three people over 65 will die with dementia.
Alzheimer’s Society supports people to live with dementia today and funds research to find a cure for tomorrow. They campaign and lobby to influence government policy and raise awareness and understanding of dementia and fund research into the cause, cure and care of dementia.
Details of the charity event to raise money to help find a cure for dementia are as follows: http://www.fourpeakschallenge.co.uk/
So please dig deep and donate now.
