So this is a big step forward for me and my family however it is time to rip the Band-Aid off and start creating something positive in such a dark time in our lives. As some of you may already be aware that my mom has Early on-set Alzheimer's. She has been battling it for a few years now.
My Mom, Kim, has a rare strand that effects an individual at a younger age. Doctors believe she first got it at the age of 54 (She is now 61 years old). Her condition affects her frontal portion of the brain: which as a result gives her trouble with hand-eye coordination, depth perception, and short term memory.
My mom is, and always has been, a fighter! We finally reached the point of no more denial and needed to start creating a silver lining. Kim Wanted to spear-head this and make others aware that Alzheimer's can affect you at any age and not just when you are "old". She wants to encourage others to get tested for the gene and take preventative measures if you know your family has a history of Alzheimer's/ Even if her message only inspires one person, her life will now have meaning again.
So we are asking all our family, friends, and anyone else to be a part of this journey with us. We want to get as many of you to walk with us and show your support. We are also raising money to find a cure and also support the associations that provide aid/assistance to those effected by this disease.
Please use the link to register to walk with our team! We are creating shirts for all who walk with us. So after you register, send me a shout out and I'll get a shirt ordered for you as well. Also for your support in donations, we will be sending Thank you gifts.
Again your support means everything to us and really appreciate you wanting to be a part of this fight with us!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
