During this holiday season, consider sparing a thought for one of Jack Draper’s biggest fans.
The 21-year-old has teamed up with Alzheimer’s Society as the latest “Sports Champion” to help raise awareness for the most common form of dementia and its devastating effects. The cause is a personal one for Draper, who opened up about what the unforgiving disease has taken away from his maternal grandmother Brenda and her loved ones.
“She has lost all physicality now. She doesn’t know who anyone is,” Draper revealed.
“My pa (grandfather) has done an incredible job to keep her going almost. It’s a full-time job. He is essentially her carer.”
