My Story

The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light -- the summer solstice -- most often on my birthday. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease!

My Mother lived with Alzheimer's for a dozen years, and I was her primary caregiver helping her stay in her own home as long as possible. The hardest thing, even more difficult than caring for Mom, was dealing with siblings who didn't help much. If you're experiencing that ... you're not alone!

Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.

My birthday wish this and every year is for a world without Alzheimer's, so I'm participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer's and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease and their caregivers.

Let your light shine!

Thank you!
