My amazing lovely brilliant dad was diagnosed with PSP IN October 2005 after he kept falling backwards. Sadly he lost his incredibly brave fight on 8th January 2011, after contracting Pneumonia. As much as it is an incredibly cruel disease my dad was an inspiration. Not once did I hear him complain or moan. He just dealt with it. Mum was a 24 hour carer even though she has MS herself and both of them were just amazing. I miss my dad every day more than I could ever imagine but I know he is at peace now, and free from all he had to go through. If there is anybody out there who ever wants to talk or ask about anything we all went through I am always happy to talk about it. This year my brother and sister ran the London marathon for PSP and raised over £4,000 and we are all very proud of them. Unless you have witnessed someone living with PSP you cannot understand what it does to a person. Dad used to be a very lively active man that used to embarrass us regularly!! - to see what he went through every day broke all our hearts. But at least he is free of it all now. Miss you dad xxx
