My story

[p]In September 2018 I received a genetic test result to show I am a carrier of the MAPT gene, a gene mutation that causes the Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD) my Nan, Auntie & Mother all lived with. Having watched & cared for my mom over a 6 year period whilst she lived with her dementia and all the difficulties and symptoms it brings was incredibly difficult. So taking the decision to be tested was not an easy one but it has given me the power to stop the agonising continuation of this illness and all the pain & stress it has caused within my family once and for all, by knowing that I am a carrier of the gene it now means my partner & I can have IVF with Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis which rules out the chance of me passing the gene onto my children so they never have to live with FTD. Even if it is too late for me, I am determined to make a difference for the future generation as 1 in 3 people born this year will live with Dementia in there lifetime. This is why I made the decision to become an Alzheimer’s Research UK community speaker and tell my story, to help spread awareness and raise money for a great cause. [/p][p]Therefore, not only will I be taking on the 2020 London Marathon but I will be fundraising for Alzheimer's Research UK, the UK's leading dementia research charity dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Alzheimer's Research UK are challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress and investing in cutting-edge research. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Like me, Alzheimer's Research UK believes that medical research can and will deliver life-changing preventions, treatments and one day, a cure for dementia. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Alzheimer's Research UK exists to make this happen and that's why I'm fundraising and why I really hope you'll sponsor me. Together we'll make life-changing breakthroughs possible.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me, and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Alzheimer's Research UK.[/p][p] [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p] [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read my page. Please donate to this fantastic cause! I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][br][/p][p]If you would like to read more about my story and how Dementia has impacted my life, you can do so via the links below;[/p][p][url=https://jordanadamssite.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/my-story-living-with-fear/]https://jordanadamssite.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/my-story-living-with-fear/[/url][/p][p][url=https://jordanadamssite.wordpress.com/2018/08/14/fortitude/]https://jordanadamssite.wordpress.com/2018/08/14/fortitude/[/url][/p][p]Thank You![/p]
