I'm taking part in A Walk to Remember at Bowood on 10 June. I'm walking in memory of my mum and everyone affected by this condition. As those of us with personal experience will know, this not only affects the person with the condition, but also their family support network.

I'd like to raise awareness that early diagnosis can result in medication that makes a real difference and raise money to help support people and their families who are going through this.
