In 2012, my husband, Michael Folio, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We have made great progress since Michael's diagnosis and have incorporated a "new normal" lifestyle with programs, strategies and processes that help us succeed in our day-to-day lives. Michael enjoys exercise, tennis, paddle, golf, music wellness, and socializing with friends as well as Oliver and Baxter, our two emotional support animals. No matter what changes occur we never give up hope and we continue to find ways to preserve and enjoy our time together.

In July 2017, Michael turned 61. He still smiles every day and shows off those baby blue eyes. We continue to build our platform as advocates for Alzheimer's, especially with the publication of our book, The 24-Hour Rule: Living with Alzheimer's is out and available on Amazon.

Since my retirement three years ago, we've focused on becoming more actively involved with the Alzheimer's organization and continue to build awareness in order to fight this devastating disease. For the third in a row, I am a Co-Chair for the 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer's. Campaigning about Alzheimer's and the impact it can have not only on the individual suffering but also on the family living with the illness is extremely important. I continue to believe "knowledge is power" and, in the case of Alzheimer's, it can also bring understanding and peace.

MIchael and I are asking for your support by participating in the 2018-Walk to End Alzheimer's. Together, we can become an unstoppable force against this devastating disease. Please help by joining our Team Levin Folio on Saturday, September 15, 2018, Gallery Park, Patriot Boulevard and Navy Boulevard @ 8;30 am in Glenview, IL (or donate on this page). Please join us and participate with Michael and me in our walk against Alzheimer's. This will be our fifth annual "Walk to End Alzheimer's" and we will continue to make this a memorable event. Your support of the Walk to End Alzheimer's will help the Alzheimer's Association to enhance the Alzheimer's care and support and advance critical research for all those affected by this horrible illness. Help us reach our $25,000 goal by making a donation to our fundraising page.

Together, we can make a difference! Please go to WWW.ALZ.ORG, select the tab Walks and visit Team Levin Folio; and/or register for the walk with us and/or donate today!

Thank you for being part of our life, sharing both the good and bad times. Michael and I are beating this illness and will continue to live a wonderful and long, happy life together filled with incredible memories shared with family and friends!

Al the best,

Cheryl and Michael
