is fundraising to honor:
my mom, Georgeanne.
"Mom, are you noticing yourself repeating the same stories over and over again?"
I didn't know how else to ask her but as she adamantly said NO, my stepfather was nodding his head YES out of her line of sight. My mother graduated sum laude from college, is a genius at crosswords, stickler for proper use of the English language and used to be the team captain of her tennis team.
Not so much anymore. She shuffles when she walks, can barely look up for a photo and hasn't spoken an original thought in 2 years. She was formally diagnosed with Alzheimer's and dementia in 2019 but it was 2013 when I first noticed changes, The happy but sad part is she is an extremely healthy person otherwise and as her doctor says "has many years left to live!"
Unfortunately her "Longest Day" is EVERY SINGLE DAY for the rest of her life. Her care is round the clock as she can't feed herself, go to the bathroom alone, bathe, drive or function without the help of her husband or respite care who come once a week to give him a break.
Raising money for research to search for a cure has become my passion. The steps are small but add up over time. Your contributions of time and/or money are invaluable and give hope to so many families and their loved ones that we are one step closer to solving the riddle of Alzheimer's Disease. Please donate what you can and pray for the researchers and doctors' to help them find answers to this disease and improved the lives of those suffering.
