Presently I am preparing an event to raise money for research into Alzheimer and Dementia. 100% of the money raised will be donated to find a cure for these diseases which affect 1 in 3 people in old age. Afflictions which leave the patient in fear, confused, and lost, and the family unable to communicate and assist them. We see our loved one in sorrow and pain but we become a stranger to them.
