Hi, I'm Theona and with my hubby Pete, we want to bring dementia down.
I began 'colouring in' to find some peace with the turmoil and heartache of my
mum's advanced Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia.
When mum was having her afternoon sleep, or whilst keeping her company in
her own confused dementia stricken world, I would colour in, and share with
mum what I was doing. Mum could no longer talk so feedback was limited.
I know she approved when we decided to put the coloured designs on dementia
specific T-Shirts, set up an online store, and sell them for our fundraising.
She is our inspiration and driving force to take action and help find a cure
for this very cruel disease that slowly tears your life away piece by piece.
I think she is happy knowing that we are working hard to fundraise for a cure.
$5.00 from each T-shirt is donated to NeuRA. Join the Squad now with your own
unique T-Shirt, knowing you are contributing towards finding a cure.
We are officially approved fundraisers for Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA)
based in Sydney. With over $26000 so far, our goal is to raise $1Million - one T-shirt
at a time, one donation at a time, along with community fundraising events and beautiful
handmade knitted and crocheted items made by my wonderful knitting group.
You can see more of our journey and make a tax deductible donation on our NeuRA page.
