My story

[p] I am once again running a 1/2 marathon this time through the beautiful royal parks in London on the 14th oct 2018 in aid again of the fantastic charity Alzheimer's Research UK. [/p][p]Like most people my family mean the world to me and although i ve been lucky enough to not have relations suffering from Alzheimer's I know alot of people who do and have seen how the disease effects family members as well as the sufferer. [/p][p]Again this is a massive challenge for me but i m looking forward to it and have set myself the challenge of making it round in 2 1/2 hours to which if I do I ll double my sponsorship with my own money....don’t worry I am determine to do this !!!!!![/p][p]Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia and effects the brain, the most common symptoms include gradual loss of memory, decline in communication skills, difficulty thinking and reasoning.[/p][p]Did you know that there are 850,000 people in the U.K living with dementia, by 2040 that number is expected to rise to over 1.5 million, which is why research will help defeat dementia and stop destroying so many lives. [/p][p]To give you an idea of where your money is helping out with Alzheimer's Research UK[/p][p]£10 buys 100 microscope slides required for the scientists studying dementia.[/p][p]£20 pays for 10 information packs for doctors to give to patients and family members.[/p][p]£50 runs the Dementia Research helpline.[/p][p]£300 pays for a brain scan for researchers to monitor effectiveness of new drugs and treatments.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for taking time to read my page and i really appreciate your support!!!!!!!![/p][p][br][/p][p]All my Love Lynn x x x [/p]
