The BBC recently published an inspiring story about a man running 7 marathons in 7 days to raise money for dementia research. His mother was diagnosed with early-onset dementia at just 49 years old and the 23 year old says he wants to "change perceptions of dementia."
"Mr Dean said his mother, Ronnie Dean, had first realised something was wrong when she started feeling uncomfortable at work, forgetting details like names. She put off telling her family. When she eventually did tell them she said the delay had been because she had seen others "treated like a child the moment they were introduced as having dementia." Explains the BBC.
