You might have a hard time figuring how it might actually feel, but forgetting the ones you love is precisely what an individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s must endures.
Now just picture someone you consider to be, young and close to you… The following is a list indicating early symptoms of Alzheimer’s, which increase in intensity the longer they are left undiagnosed or untreated.
- Regularly forgetting recent events names and faces
- Uncertainty about the date or time of day
- Problems finding the right words
Alarmingly, just 61% of people unknowingly believe Alzheimer’s to affect only the elderly (65+). The reality is unfortunately very much the opposite. You see, research conducted by Alzheimer’s Society, found that there are 42,325 people right here in the UK, who have been diagnosed with young onset dementia.
That is why we have decided to take action, and we need you on board.
We are a group of students from Westminster University and have decided to collaborate with Alzheimer’s Research UK for a university project. They must be applauded for their efforts contributed thus far. However, they need our support to continue facilitating the patients who need it the most.
Taking into account the research above, our aim is to re-define young people’s perception and awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.
All we ask is that you contribute whatever you can spare!
All funds raised will go to the heroes over at Alzheimer’s Research UK who will channel the funds into areas they see best.
Thank you for visiting our crowd fund page and we thank all donators for contributing towards those who may forget us, but at least we have not forgotten them.
