Dementia Australia would like to say a big thank you to comedian and media personality Denise Scott, who recently finished her run on Dancing with The Stars, during which she gave her all for Dementia Australia!
Dementia is a cause close to Denise’s heart, having cared for her mother Marg.
“Caring for my Mum was truly life changing,” Ms Scott said.
“I chose Dementia Australia as my Dancing With The Stars charity in the hope those living with dementia and their carers find the help and support they need.”
Dementia Australia CEO Maree McCabe said the organisation was honoured to learn Denise was supporting Dementia Australia.
“It is very generous of Denise to share her experience of caring for her mother who had Alzheimer’s disease, to help others and raise awareness to make a difference to the lives of all people impacted by dementia,” Ms McCabe said.
Following her stint on the show, Denise visited our Parkville office in Victoria for a post-Dancing with The Stars catch-up, providing us with the perfect opportunity to eat scones and have a cuppa!
Well done Denise, I'm sorry I missed you.
