Welcome to My Personal Page
Alzheimer's Association is an amazing organization that provides resources, education and support for anyone touched by dementia. Unfortunately, I know all too well how the Alzheimer's Association helps the community. My husband, Gary, has been diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease (EOAD). He is only 64 but yet, he has been suffering with this for many years already. Gary is participating in a clinical trial, his hope is to help others that will follow this path. As we have been going through this, we have met so many others that are on the same journey. It seems it is hard to find anyone that has NOT been touched by this disease. I believe that it is extremely important that we support the Alzheimer's Association so our voices can be heard in Washington. Funds are desperately needed for research. I would also like to see more related services paid through Medicare, or the ACA. The Alzheimer's Association uses the donated funds for Alzheimer's care, support, research, awareness and advocacy.
On June 21, I'm participating in The Longest Day, an event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. From sunrise to sunset, my team will complete an activity of our choosing to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Over the next two months and on the day of the event, we will be making afghan squares that will ultimately be assembled into lap blankets. These blankets are going to be donated to residents in memory care units around the county. I hope that you will help us in any way that you can, by making a donation, and/or joining us in the Longest Day event. No donation is too small.
We will also be having a raffle for the event. We are looking for donated items for the raffle, they do not need to be knitting/crochet related. We will be displaying the raffle items at the shop beginning June 1st, and the raffle will be held on June 21st. Stop by to check out the raffle prizes!
Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia. And these numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
Facebook may ask you to "add a donate button" to your Facebook post.
