Hello Family & Friends
Many of you are aware, that my mother Lucinda Clayton passed in 2013 from Alzheimer's disease. She struggle with this devastating disease for many years. On the outside she was still her loving personable shelf but on the inside she struggled to remember and how to do those day to day things many of us take for granted. Finding a cure is so very important and that is why on Oct. 3, 2015, I will be participating in the Alzheimer's Associations annual Walk to End Alzheimer's. The Mission of the association is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected: and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. As an avenue to accomplish this, I am asking you is to please sponsor me on this walk by donating any amount that is placed upon your heart, simply complete the form I have enclosed and mail it to the address provide no later than Sept. 28, 2015.
You don't have to stop with a donation, you are welcome to come and view the Ceremony which begins at 9:15 am. I promise you will be moved by the people you will see that are committed to finding a cure, people just like you and me. You can also join my team, MAMA LUCINDA, @ 10:00am, the entire walk is 3 miles or you may opt to walk the 1 mile course around the California State Capitol.
The Alzheimer's Association has personally assisted me and my family and because of their support, I continue to assist them in any way that I can. I have been an active volunteer with the association for 8 years and frankly without Gods hand in placing these people in my path as well as the many other people who have walked this journey before me, my journey would have been impossible. This walk allows me to pay it forward.
So please help me to help the millions of people that are affected by this disease. It not only affects the person living with the disease, but all members of the family, including primary caregivers and those who live long distance who may feel so helpless.
