TALKING ‘A BRAVE CHOICE’
THE Alzheimer’s Society praised Denis Law for making public his diagnosis and hopes his actions will help others struggling with the degenerative condition.
Law and his family have embarked on fundraising for the society following his diagnosis, while the former striker’s candid account of how the condition has affected him drew praise from its chief executive, Kate Lee. Lee, above, said: “We have offered support to Denis Law and the whole family.
“We are incredibly thankful to the family for choosing to raise vital funds for us and hope Denis’s bravery in coming forward will encourage many others to seek the help they need.
“We’ve seen too many sporting heroes impacted by the condition, which is why our Sport United Against Dementia campaign is needed now more than ever.
“It’s never been more important to fund crucial research and our vital support services and ensure past and present players, as well as fans, know our services are here and can get the dedicated dementia support they deserve.” ●To donate to Denis Law’s fundraising page for the Alzheimer’s Society, visit www.justgiving.com/ thelawman
