My story

[p]Grandad Maurice was my best mate and biggest supporter. In April 2014, he was placed into temporary respite care and subsequently diagnosed with Dementia with Lewy Bodies. After going into dementia respite care, he ended up in permanent care at Bentley Manor care home (Crewe). He passed away on the 13th December 2019. [/p][p]For all those that knew him, he was a man of few words and he was, in every sense, the kindest of men. Even after his diagnosis, he never lost that spirit, that turn of phrase or that sense of humour that had long defined his character. [/p][p]I am honoured and humbled therefore to be running the London Marathon later this year for a charity doing so much to raise awareness about an illness that affects so many yet isn't talked about nearly enough - the Lewy Body Society. [/p][p]Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), also known as Lewy body disease, is the second most frequent cause of age-related neurodegenerative dementia. At least 5 percent of people aged 85 and older are thought to live with this little known but not uncommon and devastating disease. In the UK approximately 100,000 are thought to have DLB.[/p][p]Please support me on this epic journey over the coming weeks and months as I embark on my toughest challenge yet! [/p][p]In his words, [i]"it'll be alright"[/i].[/p][p][b][i]*Maurice John Shiels (02.09.40 – 13.12.19) is survived by his wife, Sandra, his two daughters, three grandchildren and three step-grandchildren.*[/i][/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
