Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we.
I lost my Grandma and Grandpa to Dementia. Their names were Nancy and Jim. My Nan was an amazing dancer, actress, and shopper. She suffered from Dementia for years, but we didn't see the symptoms and signs until the end. Early on, it was a few mixed up names here and a forgetful moments there. In her last year, it was clear what was happening and all we could do was make her comfortable and happy in her final months. It's my goal to raise awareness of the disease so that symptoms and signs don't go unseen and hopefully people living with the disease can be helped sooner.
My Grandpa Jim lived with Parkinson's disease for 15 years. My grandpa was an amazing woodworker, a loyal friend, and he loved traveling Mexico. During his time with the disease, he had help from his family, but there is only so much they could do. It was hard for them to find the right kind of help. Another goal of mine is make resources more visible to those going through the disease so that there is more opportunity to increase the quality of life for those living with the disease as well as their loved ones.
Many of you may have someone going through the disease currently or you may have lost someone to the disease. Let Nancy and Jim represent all those who are facing the disease or all those who have lost a loved one to the disease. Donate For Nancy and Jim; donate for all those facing the disease head on, so we can put an end to Alzheimer's!
