Toni Lynn Spath
is participating to honor:
her mother, Laura.
On June 21, I'm doing what I love to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
This event helps raise money for an organization that is very important to me. My mother was diagnosed with Dementia in 2011 when she was 56 years old, but she was showing signs as early as 2008. As of now, she is in the late stage of Alzheimer's and I have become one of her two full-time caregivers.
Since the diagnosis, whenever I needed a question answered, the Alzheimer's Association was always there, and I want to raise money to help them with their mission: to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all effected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
During this time, along with my friends, I will be doing a video game livestream in order to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association. During the stream, besides playing games, I will also answer questions that people might have about Alzheimer's or what has it has been like to be a caregiver, especially because I have an unique perspective of being once since I was 18 years old.
