On Sunday, August 18, my beautiful, awesome, feisty spirit of a Mom Sheila Donohue passed away after her 6 year battle with Alzheimer's. There was nothing we could do other than make her comfortable and remember the extraordinary wife, mother and grandmother she was before her memories and abilities were all taken away.
Mom was just one of almost 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer's. That number is expected to explode to 16 million by 2050. Every 65 seconds someone in the US develops the disease. It is now our 6th leading cause of death, and there is no cure.
The Alzheimer's Association mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's through the advancement of research and provide much needed care and support for anyone affected. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you so much for joining the fight against Alzheimer's. Marty
