is participating to honor:
In 2005 my Grandfather passed away from complications of Alzheimer's Disease. He lived with the disease for many years before losing his battle. Alzheimer's took him from being a former head of design staff at General Motors to being someone who had trouble functioning on his own. It was a very painful progression to watch, and since his diagnosis my family has been active in supporting the Alzheimer's Association and related causes. 12 years ago, we began participating in local Alzheimer's Memory Walks in Columbus, OH.
Our mission took on an even bigger significance after my Grandmother, who was the primary caregiver for my Grandfather during his time living with Alzheimer's, passed away from complications of a stroke. We have dedicated our walk and fund-raising efforts to their memory.
Over the years, I have been involved in this cause as the Co-Chair of the Lansing, MI Walk to End Alzheimer's Planning Committee, as the co-chair of the Young Professional Alzheimer's Advocates of Lansing (YPAAL), as the organizer of the Alzheimer's Memorial Charity Golf Tournament in Fenton, MI, as an advocate at the state and national level, and as a Development Specialist for the Nebraska Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. This cause is near and dear to my heart, and I do my best to make a difference in any way that I can.
I realize everyone is busy and may give to other causes, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Anything at all would be greatly appreciated, be it the donation of money or simply words of encouragement. Whatever the case, please know that we appreciate your support.
Thank you in advance for your support.
