Almost 18 months ago I heard the words I never expected to hear, my mom was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease . Upon hearing the news I was in disbelief but the realization was I had know for several years that something was not right but to get a diagnosis just made it all that more real . This came as she just turned 70. Prior to this time she had retired many years ago and was living like a college kid on permanent spring break in Florida. I could could never find her, she was living the good life and i was so glad she had the ability to do everything she wanted , Here we are almost 2 years later and she is now in an assisted living facility, playing bingo every day which she says everyone is too slow. she does not really know where she is but she also is not in any pain which am thankful for. I know from most of the research that soon she may not even know us anymore but at least she is not suffering at all, my mom is so outgoing that for her she loves people and this disease means she gets to meet new people everyday.. everyday is a new adventure ..
For me , my getting involved is a way to pay it forward .. for all the people who have helped me along the way I now get give something back .
I 'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
