Corporate Social Responsibility and supporting charities that are close to the heart of our CEO and Founder Lisa Ventura and doing this is very important to her. We are therefore to announce that in 2020 the UK Cyber Security Association will be supporting The Encephalitis Society as our chosen charity for the year.
The reason we chose The Encephalitis Society is our CEO and Founder’s father received a shock diagnosis of CASPR2-antibody encephalitis on 8 January, following a misdiagnosis of motor neurone disease and frontemporal dementia. She has been been fighting the NHS for him since October 2017 when he was first taken ill to get a proper diagnosis, and The Encephalitis Society have already been very helpful with resources and support to help our CEO & Founder understand her Dad’s condition, what treatment he will be having in the coming weeks and what to expect in terms of his prognosis and recovery.
She will be taking part in a #BrainWalk for the Encephalitis Society on Saturday 22 February 2020, which is World Encephalitis Day. More information about this to follow, and more information about Encephalitis can be found on the Encephalitis Society website – https://www.encephalitis.info/.
We will post details of other fundraising and awareness raising activities that we will be doing for The Encephalitis Socity in 2020 in due course, so do keep an eye on our blog for updates.
