I am walking for “Team RoRo” (my mom)
Sharon Maurer's four grandchildren knew her as "RoRo," a compassionate, caring mom, wife, grandmother, teacher, and friend with the most generous heart of anyone you could ever meet.
On July 20th of this year, the longest goodbye came to an end and mom lost her battle with Alzheimer’s! This horrible disease turned our family upside down for years and robbed us of the wonderful person we all loved and knew. To say we are heartbroken is an understatement and even though we know her beautiful memories are intact once again, we miss her tremendously!
I never thought I would become an Alzheimer’s advocate, but I have to fight in Mom’s memory for all the many people who are unable to speak out. To be told there is no cure and no real treatment for someone you love is devastating! We have to find a cure!
I recently heard that if we filled 46 football fields with people that would represent the number of women alone living with Alzheimers and that number is expected to grow! Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. All proceeds and funds go to Alzheimer’s care, methods of treatments, prevention and, ultimately, a cure!
