Those affected by PSP will be robbed of the basic every day functions that most of us take for granted. Over time, the disease will affect sight, movement and mobility, speech and the swallowing reflex. In most cases the mind remains unaffected, trapped in a body that will no longer function. Life expectancy from onset of symptoms to death varies from person to person but is an average of 7 years.[/p] [p]Despite this, much can be done to improve the quality of life of those living with PSP, and to support their families and carers during this difficult time.[/p] [p]The PSP Association provides a range of services to ensure people living with PSP have access to the information, care and support that is vital to quality of life.[/p] [p]The PSP Association works with medical, health and social care professionals raising awareness of PSP and providing education, training and advice on a diverse range of subjects, from better diagnosis to managing the disease from onset to death. We also work to influence decision makers at national and local levels to raise awareness and improve services.[/p] [p]For more information on The PSP Association, visit [url=http://www.pspeur.org/]www.pspeur.org[/url] or call 01327 322410[/p] [p][b]Diabetes UK[/b] is the leading UK charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of all people affected by and at risk of diabetes.[lt]br /[gt]We help people manage their diabetes effectively by providing information, advice and support.[lt]br /[gt]We campaign to improve the quality of care across the UK’s health services.[lt]br /[gt]We give people the opportunity to influence diabetes service provision.[lt]br /[gt]We fund pioneering research into care, cure and prevention for all types of diabetes.[lt]br /[gt]We campaign to stem the rising tide of diabetes.[/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p] [p]Please be generous!![/p] [p]The 'Black Rat' Team![/p]
