I was very new to Twitter when I saw these funny # symbols and didn’t have a clue what they meant. So I watched and waited until eventually the mist cleared and I understood the # capabilities😊 . What a wonderful idea – to promote the ‘why’ part of research.
I then saw a tweet asking for ambassadors to promote the brilliant cause. As with everything my hand went up and before I knew it I had some new best buddies.
My take on #why? is:
Without research the NHS can’t move forward and without willing volunteers researchers can’t test and prove their theories. We have to have more than ‘hoping and wishing’ you don’t get dementia but that can only be achieve through research. I want to rid my daughters of the inevitability that a diagnosis of dementia currently brings and that can only be achieved through research – that’s my #why and I’m sticking to it!
