Over the last 11 years my very close family has been heavily effected by dementia. It really can happen to any of us!
7 hours of pain is nothing compared to what these poor carers and sufferers have to go through every day forever!
I thank you kindly for your contributions. Every penny raised will make a huge difference to providing better times for these sufferers.”
