This is how Wendy puts it:
I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia on 31st July 2014 at the age of 58 years young.
Post diagnosis, I was so shocked by the lack of awareness, both in the community and the clinical world, that I now spend all my time travelling around the country raising awareness and encouraging others to speak out in order to reduce the stigma associated with dementia.
I am now proud to be the author of the Sunday Times best seller, “Somebody I Used to Know”. Who would have thought this was possible 5 years ago when I was diagnosed?
