Go here to watch on Youtube, the video interview Good Grief Trust are using, for the reasons why I think this charity is such an amazing idea. Well done my pal Linda Magistris for setting it up. It's in its infancy, but the website is underway now, and some very important people are getting involved.

I have to say also, kudos to Linda and her volunteers for going along to the Grenfell follow up procedures and helping there too.

It's here! The brand-new raffle in aid of medical detection dogs is now active on JustGiving. There are some amazing prizes -

see the full donation page here

and check out the amazing value of first prize! All you have to do is buy a ticket for 5 pounds and Just Giving will do the rest, as will Sara the lovely lady who always organises these fundraisers. There are some massive prizes this time as you can see, it is on until Sunday 13th August - full Q&A on the page too, just scroll down, along with pics of prizes. The winners will be notified straight after. All the info you need is on the page. Thank you in advance for helping.

We have raised some wonderful money in the past, I do hope we are able to do so again now, especially considering how Dr Claire has been doing the rounds on various TV news interview programs recently following the announcement that the medical detection dogs team will before long be able to help detect Parkinson's disease apparently (see last post on this tab.) That's on top of their work with the NHS in a trial to detect prostate cancer in urine samples provided by the hospital. Plus maybe even breast cancer one day.

That's half of what they do. The other half is that they provide individual dogs to owners who have illnesses, eg diabetes (type one brittle) plus they even cover the cost of the upkeep and everything for the poor patient. It really is a worthy cause and I do hope you are lucky! Fingers crossed for you!

So proud to be an ambassador for this charity. One day it will be one of the biggest charities in the country, mark my words. Well done Dr Claire, again. X #Parkinsons

It takes bravery to tell all about such a personal subject but that's exactly what one of our patrons, Ian Duncan Smith's lovely wife Betsy, did in the national newspapers this week. She also explains how she was so impressed with the work of MDD research and how it may one day help others int he same position with breast cancer, to be diagnosed earlier.

REad all of Andrew Pierce's article about Betsy Duncan Smith and Medical Detection Dogs in the Daily Mail Tue 15th here.
