Last year, I managed to raise nearly $15,000 for Dementia Australia (previously Alzheimer's Australia). Many of you may know my Mum suffered with this disease for some years, and in 2017 she began to deteriorate quite rapidly.
In April of this year, she passed away. We held a service for her on what would have been her 70th Birthday.
Alzheimer's is such a horrible disease - and yet so many of us will be affected by it. Dementia is the number one cause of death for women in Australia. When it strikes early - it's devastating. Watching the person you know and love slowly slip away from you, their mind slowly fading in fragments.
This year, I'm hoping to exceed my $15,000 goal by the time I run the City 2 Surf on Sunday August 12th 2018. I'd really love it if you could help support this cause by donating to this page.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
