This will be my 7th year walking. He is the reason I walk and I will continue to walk every year.
Lewy Body Dementia is the second most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer's disease. Protein deposits, called Lewy bodies, develop in nerve cells in the brain regions involved in thinking, memory and movement.
Symptoms of dementia with Lewy bodies include:
- Confusion and alertness that varies significantly from one time of day to another or from one day to the next
- Parkinson's symptoms, such as a hunched posture, balance problems and rigid muscles
- Visual hallucinations
- Trouble interpreting visual information
- Acting out dreams, sometimes violently, a problem known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep disorder
- Malfunctions of the "automatic" (autonomic) nervous system
- Memory loss that may be significant but less prominent than in Alzheimer's
If you are not familiar with this disease please visit the website for the Lewy Body Dementia Association and become educated on this. Our goal is to bring awareness to this disease and to raise funds for research.
My goal this year is to raise $500.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
