Story

You may know him as Trevor Whymark , ex professional football player .

Most remembered at Ipswich Town and England international .

But we know him as our dad , husband , grandad ,brother , uncle and friend .

Dad was diagnosed in late 2019 with Alzheimer’s after we noticed changes in moods , behaviour and his short term memory.

Going into lockdown in 2020 certainly exacerbated the condition .

At first we were reluctant to divulge dads condition as it was very personal and we as a family were coming to terms with it and quite frankly finding hard to except .

The PFA ( Professional Footballers’ Association) have been instrumental in giving , not just dad but the immediate family help, advice and support .

We have decided as a family we are ready to tell dads story in the hope that it brings awareness of this dreadful disease and try and raise as much money to help all those that are effected .

We understand these are difficult times but encourage you to please give to this very worthy cause .

Thank you from The Whymark family !

Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever.

Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
