My Amazing Mom!
with my team
Wow!! So overwhelmed with the generosity of my friends and family! I exceeded my $500 goal which is awesome but after visiting mom yesterday & experiencing a punch in the gut moment as she slips deeper into this disease I know I need to do more. So I increased my goal to $1000. I am donating another $25 myself, so roughly $300 to go. 30 people @ $10! Can we do it by June 30?
Punch in the gut moment: Andrew & I sat outside with mom yesterday enjoying sun and chatting. One thing mom has being doing for about the last year is saving her bag of Ruffles potato chips for Andrew. She'll have them stock piled sometimes. She makes sure I take them to him. I just took a bag for him Friday. As our visit came to an end & were on the way back to her room I mention how much Andrew loves what he calls "mom's special chips". Even after telling her it is the bags of Ruffles she gives him she had know idea what I was talking about or even where she would get chips from. Broke our hearts and was a reminder this disease is relentless & there is no way to stop it from destroying her brain. We need treatments, prevention or a cure as I know how much my heart hurts. I want to do everything so others don't have to go through this.
