Help, I have Alzheimer's !?
My name is Henrik Frenkel and I have just turned 70 years old. At Easter 2019, I was diagnosed with MCI (mild memory disorder) with probable development for Alzheimer's. I have been running the blog Help for some time, I have Alzheimer's?!. In October 2019, we also started a podcast series with the same name. Linked to the blog and the podcast, I and my team also want to raise funds that will go to the much-needed research on Alzheimer's, a disease that has existed for over 100 years and that no one survives. The collection will result in an annual award addressed to researchers or doctors who contribute to the research being done in Sweden reaching out to needy patients more quickly. Research on Alzheimer's disease in Sweden receives only 10 percent of the resources that go to cancer research. Swedish research on Alzheimer's is in many ways a world leader. Unfortunately, it often takes too long for the results at different research centers to reach clinical trials, and ultimately help patients in dire need. Alzheimer's is today the largest public disease in the world. In Sweden alone, 20,000 new people are affected every year. The only way to stop this dark development is through research. Hope you want to support my fundraiser!
Give a gift for the brain this Christmas
Both of Molly's grandparents have suffered from Alzheimer's disease. The only thing she wants this Christmas is for grandma and grandpa to be as usual again and remember what her name is. Let's help her together. Give a gift that contributes to the important research to find a cure.
Families with a relative with dementia need your help
In these alarming times, it is important that we help those who care for a family member who has a diagnosis of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease. People with dementia are often fragile elderly people who forget how to take care of hygiene, how to dress, go to the toilet or wash their hands. Therefore, people with dementia are perhaps the most vulnerable group to the coronavirus. For those who care for their relatives at home, this is an extra difficult time where they have to take care of both themselves and their sick relatives. This is also an extremely tough time for those who cannot visit their relatives in the nursing home where there is a restraining order. When someone suffers from Alzheimer's disease, the patient is deprived of their memories and personality. The relative is forced to be absent when their relative slowly fades away piece by piece when the only thing they want is to take advantage of the time they have left together.
