My Story

The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light the summer solstice. In this case, it represents a way to shine the most light on the challenges and the heartbreak felt by patients and their loved ones living with dementia.  I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.


I feel great passion for the fundraising initiative I have chosen as part of The Longest Day effort.   Both of my parents, my father, a fun, witty, brilliant retired physician, and my mother, a smart woman, full of the life and energy it took to raise six children, died a few years back with progressive dementia.  So, with them as my inspiration, I will be hosting a pickleball tournament fundraiser July 29-31, 2022 in Greenwood, Indiana.  Pickleball is currently the fastest growing participation sport in the United States.  I strongly believe that using the fun, excitement and competitiveness of pickleball to support such an important cause as the fight against Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia will serve to honor and memorialize my parents in a way they deserve.
