Big thank you to all our runners who took part in the Virgin London Marathon. Over 500 people ran for us raising more than half a million pounds that will help us provide services to support people with dementia and their families. Thank you also to all our fantastic volunteers and everyone that came along to cheer our runners.

For all those that took part please feel free to share your story about how you got on. If you were one of our runners this year and would like to run again next year or if you have been inspired to take part you can apply for a 2016 place now http://bit.ly/1EvWxyh

Paul Seymour was recently diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's at the age of 54. His wife Tracey is adjusting to life as his carer. Although Paul is still relatively well she knows that it’s going to drastically affect both of their lives over the coming years. Tracey said that after they received the diagnosis, she broke down and thought:
'How could he have dementia at just 54? The doctor confirmed it was extremely rare in younger people - only 5% of people with Alzheimer's are under 65.
'Over the next few weeks, still reeling from the diagnosis, we began to adapt to our new life. I learnt that when Paul was being quiet and detached, he was simply struggling to follow the conversation.' 
Paul says:
'I've never stopped loving Tracey - how could I? I was terrified by my symptoms and I wouldn't be able to cope if it wasn't for her'
Tracey and Paul are taking part in the Bristol Memory Walk this September to support Alzheimer's Society. Find your nearest walk: http://bit.ly/1Jttppt

We had a great day at our national conference at the Kia Oval yesterday. We were joined by many important guests from the health and social care sector. As always the real champions are those people living with dementia. 

New guidance for communities to become Dementia Friendly was also published yesterday by BSI in conjunction with Alzheimer's Society and the Department of Health. http://bit.ly/1MjRmmA

About months Searching for a credible Financial company I applied for a loan with  my Colorado bank,  my job and and credit score denied my application, they told me about my position income and i realized that my application had been cancelled or filed. I felt crushed because I really felt i had an opportunity until i lost my hopes. But when i was introduced to an online quick financial corporation 'Myers Universal Corporation (MUC)'. i have a wonderful experience as i got the my credit in a period of 36 hours. I urge you all who need financial assistance to contact Mr, Earl Myers or simply email directly to: info@myersuniversalcorporation.com

It’s polling day today – let’s hope that the next government continues to support people affected by dementia and make it a priority over the next few years.
