My Story

HI ALL, NORM AND I ARE SENDING THIS TO YOU BECAUSE NOBODY IS SAFE FROM SOMEHOW BEING AFFECTED BY THE DEVASTATION OF THIS DISEASE !! IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN, YOU ARE AT RISK!! WE NEED TO FIND A CURE !!

MY BROTHER IN LAW, STEVE JOHANSON,AT AGE 59, WAS DIAGNOSED WITH EARLY ONSET ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE. STEVE WAS ONE OF THE MOST WONDERFUL, LOVING, INTELLIGENT PEOPLE YOU WILL EVER MEET. HE WAS A DAD, HUSBAND, GRAMPS, AND DEAR FRIEND TO MANY. HIS CAREER AS A PROJECT MANAGER AT NORTHEASTERN CAME TO AN ABRUPT HALT WHEN HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.

ON APRIL 2, 2018, AT THE AGE OF 65, STEVE TOOK HIS LAST BREATH AND LOST HIS BATTLE TO THIS DISEASE.

THIS DEVASTATING DISEASE IS THE SIXTH LARGEST CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES. I ASK YOU TO PLEASE SUPPORT THE RESEARCH FOR THIS HORRIBLY DEBILITATING DISEASE AND KEEP STEVE AND ALL OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN STRUCK BY THIS IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.

WE ARE JOINING THE FIGHT BY PARTICIPATING IN "THE LONGEST DAY", A SUNRISE-TO-SUNSET RELAY EVENT TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE CARE, SUPPORT AND RESEARCH EFFORTS OF THE ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION. THIS EVENT IS ABOUT LOVE, PATIENCE, STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE, AND AWARENESS ... BUT IT'S ALSO ABOUT A CHALLENGE. ON June 15, 2018. ALONG WITH OUR TEAMMATES, WE WILL TEST OUR PHYSICAL LIMITS BY COMPLETING APPROXIMATELY 16 HOURS OF ENDURANCE ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS BIKING, RUNNING, WALKING. DANCING, OR PLAYING HORSESHOES, JUST TO NAME A FEW . WE WILL BE TURNING THE TOWN PURPLE THAT DAY TO RAISE AWARENESS!

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO OUR PART! PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD LIVING WITH ALZHEIMER'S, INCLUDING MORE THAN 5 MILLION AMERICANS. GIVE TO HONOR NEARLY 15 MILLION AMERICAN CAREGIVERS, WHO GENEROUSLY DEDICATE THEMSELVES TO THOSE WITH ALZHEIMER'S AND DEMENTIA.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROSITY. TOGETHER WE CAN SEND A MESSAGE: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. WE'RE IN IT UNTIL ALZHEIMER'S IS FINISHED.

THANK YOU,

JANE CORRIGAN AND

NORMAN DESROCHERS
