LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 1, 2016) - GTX Corp. (OTC PINK: GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location GPS wearable and wandering assistive technology business, announced Unforgettable.org has launched an advertising campaign on radio, the SAGA Magazine and social media, designed to help create awareness for those who care for their loved ones suffering from dementia. The campaign provides heart-felt stories together with information, products and services of use to dementia sufferers and their care-givers, and features the GPS SmartSoles that provide a discreet, reliable solution for those who "wander".
"We were thrilled to launch our first radio advertising campaign for Unforgettable on Smooth Radio London", said James Ashwell, Unforgettable's founder. "The voiceover artist, actress Paula Wilcox, has her own personal link to dementia which I think really comes across. You can read about this and hear the ads on our website."

James continued, "I passionately believe there is plenty of life to be lived with dementia and that innovative products and services can really help. Unforgettable makes it easier to access specialized support and for caregivers to discover dementia products that really have a positive impact. Combined with forums for sharing stories, reassurance, advice and articles on advances in dementia care."
"Unforgettable.org is one of the most useful and innovative services for the dementia community," said Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO. "As with many healthcare innovators, James' inspiration came from caring for his mother, and he has created a useful, easy-to-access website offering information, services and products for those in the United Kingdom suffering from dementia and other cognitive memory disorders. We are excited to see our partners in the U.K. start advertising in a meaningful way and look forward to following the success of the campaign."
In 2015, it was estimated that there were 850,000 people living with dementia in the U.K. As a result of memory, physical and communication challenges, people with dementia may experience social isolation, loneliness, disorientation and wandering. Going for a walk can sometimes be a challenge for them, which can lead to getting lost even in familiar surroundings. These distressing experiences can result in reduced activity, increased social isolation and increased caregiver stress, so any form of technology that can support people to get out and move about more safely and confidently, such as the GPS SmartSoles is a significant quality of life improvement. "We are very pleased that Unforgettable.org and our master distributor Possum, have begun advertising across the U.K. on the radio and print in order to generate more product awareness", stated Andrew Duncan GTX Corp Director of business development.
A social mission at the heart of everything we do. Unforgettable is a for-profit social enterprise with 10% of profits going to the Unforgettable Foundation, but profit is not their only driver.
