In memory of Patricia Ann Poore
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I'm taking on the enormous physical challenge and personal adventure of cycling across South Carolina. I've also committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
In May of 2018 I lost my mama who suffered from alzheimers and dementia. I was her caregiver for several years and watched a once vibrant woman lose a little more oomph each day. My mama was a sweet woman and everyone who knew her loved her . She was the bravest person I've ever known because she accepted her diagnosis and never complained a day in her life about the disease or card she had been dealt. She taught me more about life than any self help book could have ever dreamed of . I miss her terribly and I left a lucrative retail career to devote myself to caring for alzheimer patients as well.
I hope that you will help my efforts by making a donation, as this will also be the largest physical challenge of my life and I am doing it for my incredible mama.. Thank you xoxo
