My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's close to his 70th birthday. He is now in heaven just three short years later. It seemed like warp speed. He was such an incredible man and of course I would say that right? I NEW THIS and our family new this but when we met all of his amazing friends, the endless people walking through the door sharing their stories, sharing their love...Dad had touched so many lives. He was there for so many people through thick and thin and he made so many people laugh. Of course he had all of us, his family but those two days at the services we realized family isn't just through blood. All of these friends streaming in were family as well. Dad's family. Dad truly was a silly, happy, quirky, serious, tough, stubborn, free spirited, loving, jokester of a incredible man!!! And this disease took him from us.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. I'm leading the way to "Alzheimer's first survivor" by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®.
