is fundraising to honor:
her mother, Louise,
The longest day is the day of the year with the most light, the summer solstice, and it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease. My mom, Louise "Weezie" Peterson, battled Alzheimer's disease for over 15 years. She was a kindhearted, warm and loving woman who unfortunately passed in October, 2018.
She loved everything that life had to offer- time spent with family, close friends, nature's beauty. It was painful to watch this vibrant woman slowly disappear. When she was first diagnosed, my mother said that relationships were the most important thing in her life and now Alzheimer's was going to rob her of them. With Alzheimer's you lose a family member piece by piece.
During her battle with Alzheimer's, Weezie may have forgotten people's names, where she was going or what she was doing but she always kept her gracious heart, her warm smile and her infectious laugh.
After watching her struggle with Alzheimer's, my sister, Cathy, and I committed ourselves to fundraising for this important cause. Cathy and I wanted to do something bigger than ourselves to help raise funds for Alzheimer's care and research.
In the light of the longest day I fight in honor of the strongest woman I know - my mother. Please help me and 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.
