If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you will probably know what Progressive Supranuclear Palsy is – a rare neurological condition which Adrian’s mum, Alma, was first diagnosed with around 16 years ago.
Today Alma no longer suffers from PSP, she passed away quietly in her sleep in the early hours of this morning so she is finally at peace. Adrian has written more about it over on his blog.
Alma was rare, possibly unique, in that she survived far longer than normal life expectancy for this particular disease and over the last 16 years, we have had a lot of support from the PSP Association. We’ve also done our bit to put something back their way with fundraising in the past, and indeed we currently have a limited edition ‘Happy Birthday’ stamp with 50p from every sale going to the charity.
We will continue to support the charity in the future, but right now, in honour of Alma, I’d like to share a poster that they have produced to help raise awareness of the illness and drive their “A Million to beat PSP” campaign.
The words ‘rest in peace’ have never felt more appropriate – so Alma, once you and Derrick have finished the wild reunion party, may you both rest in eternal peace.
