My Story

I’ve joined the fight to end Alzheimer’s! I’m participating in The Longest Day to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

The Longest Day is the day with the most light — the summer solstice. On June 21, thousands of participants from across the world come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer’s through a fundraising activity of their choice. Will you join the fight with a donation today?

Alzheimer’s disease has touched so many lives, everyone you talk to has a story about their relationship with Alzheimer's. It has touched mine....many times over. My mother was diagnosed in 2016. Since then, I have come across many people affected either by it or with it in my career, my family, friends and in social circles.

Last year, God laid a plan on my heart. It was placed upon me to embrace this horrible disease and to stop talking about it and do something about it. So I am! I have completed my first Walk to End Alzheimer's. I raised over $3,200 in a very short time. I am now connected with many resources of Alzheimer's support networks. I feel an overwhelming amount of appreciation from all of my friends and social connections for taking this step and doing what I can to help change the trajectory of this horrific disease. My life's goal has always been to make a difference in someone's life everyday. I hope this makes a difference in yours.

Please join me on Saturday, April 29th, 2023 and make a difference in a fun way! We will eat, dance, laugh, share stories and mostly, support our cause. The event proceeds will be directly donated to the Alzheimer event "The Longest Day" - your donation is tax deductible.

****About my invitation:

Purple is the color of Alzheimer and represents someone who died from Alzheimer's.

Yellow is the color for a caregiver/advocate/protector.

Blue is the color for someone living with Alzheimer's. Folks living with Alzheimer's are often depressed and BLUE with sadness and feeling lonely and isolated because they can no longer interact with society as they once could.

Orange is the color for a supporter of the Alzheimer's organization. Folks that support and embrace the Yellow Caregivers.

White is the color of HOPE, HOPE for a world WITHOUT Alzheimer's!! I HOPE you will join me in making this a reality.

The umbrella is symbolic in sheltering the Elephant from progressing to the color purple. The elephant symbolizes unity, memory, hope. An elephant never leaves a family member in its herd if hurt, sick or dying. They remain to give support, strength and hope. An elephant never loses hope until all hope is gone. They stay and support, never forgetting who needs them or why they are there. The upward trunk is said to hold luck, hope and love.

The date of the event is significant because it is my younger sister's birthday. We lost her in 2004. I help mom remember her by talking about her and telling mom stories about Amber. The Mother Event, The Longest Day, is connected to June. Mom's birthday is in June.

Two phrases I try to speak daily: 1) Speak to her like you LOVE her and 2) Remember for her so she will never forget.

Purple Reign - God is the King of this Event. It is a Divinely woven plan of Love and Hope.

Please join us in this event that will be AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER.
