My wife Mary lost her battle with Dementia on March 29, 2018. She is now free and at peace with our Lord and once again whole in body and mind. She was diagnosed with early onset Dementia in 2004. In May of 2014 I had no choice but to place her in a care facility where she received the level of care I could no longer provide. On February 20th after 2 hospitalizations with pneumonia since January 10th my daughters and I made the decision to place here in Hospice care, where she received excellent care from an amazing team.
Unfortunately there is no cure for this cruel and relentless disease at this time. We must be just as relentless in this battle to find a cure, and one day we will prevail. Alzheimer's has reached the crisis stage in America and is now considered the #1 health issue we are facing. More people die from Alzheimer's than from breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
My Family & I will be walking in the Omaha Walk to End Alzheimer's on September 22, 2019 in memory and honor of Mary and all who are dealing with Alzheimer's/Dementia. This disease robs one of not only their memory and cognitive functions, but eventually their dignity as well. As I do my part, would you please support me and Team MARY'S MUNCHKINS with a donation.
My dream is that not only will a cure be found, but ultimately a means of prevention that will keep my grandchildren and great grandchildren from having to deal with it.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Alzheimer's Association offers education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
