We lost this sweet dear woman in 2015 and our fight is more resolute than ever. We are determined, and unwavering in our fight against this disease.
We invite you to join our team help us fight this disease by attending one of our fundraisers or pledging your support through a gift to one of our dedicated team members.
We appreciate your help very much - we take that gift very personally and every penny counts to help find treatments and a cure of this disease that affects more than 5.4 million people in the united states today - and 69,000 Iowa residents.
Not only does this disease affect millions of people who have the disease, but it also directly affects the family and friends of those afflicted with the disease. Alzheimer's is called the "long goodbye" and i can tell you first hand, that is true. I watched my mother progressively deteriorate over 13 long years. It was a horrible experience for both her and for her family and friends. No one deserves to have that sort of long, torturous death - nobody.
Thank you for your consideration to our cause - for more information, please call the Alzheimer's Association or visit their website at Alz.org, you can also contact me (Leora the team captain) with any questions or if you just need to discuss your situation with someone. I am here to help in any way I can. LRDarrah@aol.com or find me and/or team: Walkin’ For Mom on Facebook.
