Two woman – one living with dementia and one without – but both are volunteering for research! Find out why.

The short film features a lively conversation between two of our champions (and prolific bloggers), Wendy Mitchell and Susie Join Dementia Research Wendy And SusieHewer.

Wendy was diagnosed with young onset dementia last year at the age of 58. She is living well with dementia and is a strong advocate for research.  Since her diagnosis she continued to work, and now writes a blog about her experience of living with young onset dementia called Which me am I today?

Extreme knitting red head, Susie Hewer continues to smash world records for crocheting and running. Susie became an advocate for more research into dementia after caring for her mother for 8 years, who lived with vascular dementia. Susie is now a Alzheimer’s Research UK Champion and has set herself the ambitious target of running 60 marathons before she is 60.

The pair had a lively conversation a few weeks ago on our launch day.  They discussed Wendy’s diagnosis and their commitment to volunteering to research.
