Meet our Readers

Judy - In 1983 my lovely son John, aged twenty-one, was diagnosed with schizophrenia.  The following year my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and when she was unable to be alone she came to live with us. Now I had two loved ones living their nightmare existences under our roof. NeuRA needs funding to continue its great work. Books For Brains offers an avenue whereby readers can assist.


Lisa - My Nanna has dementia. She is still her beautiful self but to watch someone you love deteriorate and suffer episodes where they are so confused they become very distressed can break your heart. Books for Brains is raising funds for dementia research at NeuRA so in October my eldest son Luca and I will be reading as many self help and Mr Men Books as we can!
