My mother Lila fought for over 10 years with Alzheimer's, which is a form of dementia. With dementia you start to forget things from your most recent moments in time. You forget what you had for breakfast, you forget who visited you that day, you forget what day it is. As the disease progresses you forget larger chunks of your memory, such as the last year, or two years, etc. You forget who your friends are, and eventually you forget who your loved ones caring for you are. Lila fought long and hard. She kept a calendar and a notepad next to her to write down things to help her remember. But eventually the disease takes over and that no longer works. You forget how to write, how to get dressed, how to brush your teeth, how to take your medicine, and yes even how to use the bathroom.

In addition to my mother, several loved family members and friends have died from Alzheimer's or are still suffering with it. I watch each day as they struggle with their memory, health, and daily lives. I see and feel the toll it has on the caregivers who care for their loved ones and have to watch them as they continue their fight. The hardest thing to do is be a caregiver to someone you love who can't remember how to get through the day, and many times can't remember who you are.

Please join me. The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you. Please make a donation and/or join the walk to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.

Thank you for joining the movement!

Barbara
