Anyone who's knows me has heard me talk about Weezy. Weezy was one hell of a woman and a great inspiration to me. She played a huge role in my life and in making me the woman I am today. Weezy was strong, whitty and loving.The signs of Alzheimer's were subtle at first but then hit me like a ton of bricks. This strong minded woman, my idol, my hero had fallen victim to this horrible disease. I never want anyone to suffer with this, to not know, to feel scared, to want to say something but you don't know the words to express yourself. I never want anyone to feel the pain of watching a loved one fall victim to this monster. Alzheimer's is the robber of the mind, the magical disappearing act of memories. I will be walking IN MEMORY of Weezy because I will never forget the memories we shared and will always remember the times we shared. I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.
There are 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.
