Our Team Story
On June 20, stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s. Join our team for The Longest Day, the day the Alzheimer’s Association calls on everyone to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Together, we'll raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's care, support and research.
As many of you know, my dad wrestled with Alzheimer's for for over 12 years. We were fortunate to be able to keep him home throughout his decline. It was a challenge in more ways than you can imagine, but we were grateful to be able to care for him as he had cared for my mother, my children and me, throughout our lives.
My dad LOVED to play cards.. from solitaire, to any variation of bridge, to rummy, to poker, and beyond! As luck would have it, one of the last activities he was able to stay engaged with was an online bridge program. Even though his skill ebbed, he enjoyed the interaction for many of the years in his Alzheimer's journey. To honor him this day, and in the scope of isolation, please join me in playing whatever kind of card game YOU enjoy. It can be with actual cards or virtually... whichever brings you more joy! On the Longest Day, I'm going to find a virtual bridge game and try my luck at a few hands. Won't you join me?
