Welcome to My Personal Page
Being one of my hero's growing up my mom taught me a lot about life. She always told me people liked getting things in the mail (before email of course!) & there is always time for please and thank you. She taught me to do things with enthusiasm, and to have a positive attitude no matter what the circumstance. One of her greatest hallmarks was always remembering a face and a name - making everyone feel special and known! Today, though, my mom has trouble putting a sentence together,remembering family members, or that she was married to my dad for 55 years.
My mom has Alzheimer's disease.
Because she can't fight for herself, I will fight for her - and I hope you'll join me.
Alzheimer's is a disease that attacks the most powerful organ in your body: your brain. It has a devastating effect on its ability to work properly. The disease kills brain cells, leaving its victims unable to communicate, recognize family and friends, care for themselves, and form new memories. Unlike other diseases Alzheimer's has no survivors. Imagine for a moment not being able to remember your wedding day, your kids being born, or the friendships you made during your life. Alzheimer's steals those memories. And the most devastating part - It has no cure!
This April I will run the Capital City Half marathon as a way to to raise funds for The Longest Day benefiting the Alzheimer's Association and I need your help. Please join me and show your support for the 47 million people living with Alzheimer's worldwide (and their caregivers), including my hero, my mom, Nancy Enis.
Please donate today to help make this a world without Alzheimer's.
Because memories matter,
