In her twenties, Morella Kayman wanted to become an opera singer, only to have her dreams dashed when she developed cancer. After battling through the disease, her husband Lawrence was then diagnosed with pre-senile dementia at the age of 51.Frustrated that so little information about the condition and so little support was available, Morella wrote to every national newspaper in Britain. Within a week, she had been flooded with mail.One letter was from a fellow carer, Cora Philips, and the pair joined forces in 1979 to form the Alzheimer's Disease Society. From very humble beginnings, the charity, now called the Alzheimer's Society, has more than 20,000 members and Morella has worked tirelessly to raise funds to help people living with dementia, their families and carers.Morella's rich and colourful life story will be a support to anyone who has lived through the challenges of Alzheimer's disease or cancer. Her incredible determination and chutzpah continues to inspire, and in 2012 she was awarded the MBE for services to the Alzheimer's Society.A percentage of profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society.
