My Story

I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by those who are afflicted by this disease and the carers helping those who we love. Alzheimer's is incredibly underfunded and I want to try and help change this.

I strongly urge everyone to watch this 7 minute video.

There are more than 413,106 Australians living with dementia. By 2025 the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to 536,164. Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to reach 1,100,890 by 2056

Currently around 244 people each day are joining the population with dementia. The number of new cases of dementia will increase to 318 people per day by 2025 and over 650 people per day by 2056.

Please help me, help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Alzheimer's Australia Vic, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Thank You
