Why do I Walk to End Alzheimer's?
I walk in memory of my own family members who have lost their battle with this horrible disease decades ago. I walk in memory of so many families that I have spoken with in support groups, at education programs, in Doctor's offices, and on the phone. I also walk in honor of individuals that have been recently diagnosed, who are living with Alzheimer's or another type of dementia and their families, friends and neighbors who love them. They have found quality of life - and are making a difference in their own life and in the lives of individuals being diagnosed - through Public Policy and Advocacy at the Local, State and National level.
I have been blessed to have families allow me to listen to their story, their conflict, their frustration and sadness, but also their hope. Their hope for a World without Alzheimer's is what pulls them through everyday. I have had the pleasure of working with families in Assisted Living, Memory Care, Adult Day Programs, Skilled Nursing Facilities and at the Alzheimer's Association for more than twenty years. I have seen many wonderful changes in care, support, information, and research during this time.
WE are making a difference.
