Gail's Walk Donation Page
We knew something was wrong but didn't know what it was. Her doctor was unable to help, suggesting she was simply tired and not thinking clearly, nothing to be worried about. That answer was not acceptable, we were watching her slip further away each day. I reached out to a college friend whose husband was an intern at a hospital in Portland, OR. He suggested we take Mom to a gerontology clinic and have them do a complete work up. We followed his suggestion and after three days of testing, we had our answer. It was Alzheimer's. That was 24 years ago and over the next nine years we watched, struggled and fought this devastating disease. Mom lost her battle against Alzheimer's in 2002, and I miss her every day. So, this is why I walk. I walk to honor my mother, to raise funds and awareness in the hope that in my lifetime I can witness a cure. Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
