My story

[p]As a family we have been struggling with Dementia for many years, firstly with Pete’s Dad who passed away in 2012 after suffering from Lewy bodies dementia, and my Mum who has had Vascular dementia for just over 3 years.. it’s a heartbreaking disease, one which no family should have to go through, it’s one of the cruelest diseases. Watching your loved ones get frustrated about the things they can no longer do (for my mum that’s reading, she misses it so much!) to saying and doing things they would be mortified about, had they any idea.. and watching the reactions of the people that don’t know her, judge her for these things is really hard, and knowing there is no cure, no hope, just a deterioration of the person you once knew to come.[/p][p]I can’t sit by and not try to do something..so I've joined the Dementia Revolution team, the official Charity Team of the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019 to run 26.2 miles to raise money for much needed research![/p][p]I need to raise £2000, as if the training wasn’t hard enough.. so I have also dragged poor Pete in to train with me by signing us both up for the Brighton marathon 2 weeks before London.. so cheer us on and sponsor us if you can, as we train, and put our best foot forward to try and help raise money for Dementia Revolution, because research can end dementia..and although this seems so far off now and couldn’t help Pete’s Dad or my Mum fight this awful disease it needs to be stopped.. [/p][p]Dementia is the biggest health threat facing our society and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it. [/p][p]But a revolution is growing - on the streets and in the laboratories. Scientists are gaining on dementia, making discoveries to change lives. But they can't do it alone. We must bring dementia out of the shadows, so that people living with this devastating condition can lead more fulfilling lives. [/p][p]Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK are joining forces for a year-long campaign to power ground-breaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure. [/p][p]We all must make a stand; sponsor me today to support ground-breaking dementia research. [/p][p]The Dementia Revolution is here. Join us.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Suzy x[/p]
