"A Promise Made"
Team Fundraising Goal: $2,000.00
|Total Number of Gifts: 0|
|Total Value of Gifts: $0.00|
It has been over 10 years since Angelo was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Dementia. We had been married for over 20 years. He passed away 7 years ago.
I made him two promises. One was that I would stay by his side through this ordeal and the second was that I would continue to fight to help find a cure for this devastating disease.
Watching the changes a person goes through as a result of this disease is heartbreaking. It affects not only the person afflicted but family, friends and care givers. I was all three to him. And I kept my first promise; I was with him to the very last breath.
To fulfill the second promise, I continue to be an advocate for erasing this disease and am a volunteer for the Alzheimer's Association as a member of the "Walk to End Alzheimer's" committee. More importantly, I am raising funds to continue research to find a cure.
I am keeping my promise to keep fighting to make Alzheimer's just a 'memory'. I am asking for your help.
Please consider making a donation to support me in this cause. Any and all
donations are appreciated.

After reading your tribute page on the Alzheimer's Association website, I wanted to write a message on your Guest book. First of all, what you wrote titled, "A promise made", was so moving. I admire you, for your dedication to your loved one, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. My Mother currently has Alzheimer's disease.
