My dad was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's when I was 18. I barely knew what Alzheimer's was at the time and the horrors of the disease have only shocked me more for the past 6 years.
I always loved my dad and we were very close. My admiration for him really skyrocketed within the first few years of his disease. He had very minimal symptoms at the time and put all his energy into fighting Alzheimer's disease. He won awards for his work with Alzheimer's New Jersey, he gave speeches, he went on podcasts. It was amazing to watch someone with such a horrible disease, work to fight it. He would always say, "I know I won't be cured, but its for the future generations to have a chance." Unfortunately the disease at this point is very advanced and there isn't much of my dad left anymore, but I continue to fight on for him.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
