“I truly have “2 left feet” as evidenced with a number of falls and broken ankles. I have always lacked that “natural rhythm and grace” I see in those who can dance. So my partner, Adam will need a sense of humor and patience.
I have friends with family members affected by Alzheimer’s. I believe this disease has to be the most horrendous of all diseases that destroy a functional life. While other diseases may ravish the body, Alzheimer’s destroys the mind. In doing so, their relationships with their loved ones are destroyed with their behavior.
To have some financial influence in finding a cure will reward each of us knowing we can and will make a difference. The broken hearts of loved ones everywhere relish the thought of prevention and treatment. Please stand with Adam and I in their cause.
