Denise's diagnosis in October 2012 was a surprise. The disease has progressed rapidly, and in the short time since diagnosis she is already in a memory care home. All before her 60th birthday.
Denise's love of water was pervasive throughout her life. She grew up near the ocean, went sailing, skiing and was a great swimmer. Just a few years ago she was still participating in an aqua fit class and swimming laps like she has been doing since she was a kid. Our team name "Swim Fins" honors her love of water and swimming.
