The Alzheimer's Society is currently the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today.
The current statistics suggest that a person develops Dementia every three minutes and there is currently no cure to stop it, or slow it down. It is the UK's biggest killer yet there has been no new medication found for the last 15 years.
The Alzheimer's Society has been chosen as our current 'People focused' charity by Rachael the Soul Good Stuff founder as it is close to our hearts. Unfortunately, like many other families, our family has experienced first hand the suffering and heartbreak caused by the progression of Dementia.
My lovely Nan was diagnosed with Dementia in 2015 and it has been a truly devastating disease both for my Nan, Grandad and everyone close to her – all with no chance of a cure, or the opportunity to stabilise the progression of the illness. Sadly, we know that our family is one of millions who are in the same situation.
For this reason, we believe if you can make a change you should. We would be over the moon to be able to contribute towards research which may one day help to find a cure and some relief for others suffering from Dementia in the future.
I'd love for you to get in touch if you also fundraise money for the Alzheimer's Society, and I would love for you to share your experience by emailing Rachael via our email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
