My mother was an outgoing and kind woman with a wonderfully naughty sense of humor. She treated strangers like friends and easily forgave those who had done wrong. She loved her children and spoiled her grandchildren probably more than she should. She was the one I ran to when life got bad and she could always help me see a bright side.
Shortly after a fall, she began to change. She became quiet and introspective. Eventually she became combative and forgot who we were. My mother disappeared in front of my eyes. Towards the end she no longer talked nor walked. Her sparkle in her eyes was replaced with an emptiness. I longed to talk to my mother but she seemed to be no longer there. My grieving had started before she was physically gone. And two years after her death, I can still feel the pain of watching her leave right before my eyes.
I'm walking for my mom and all those who are afflicted. I walk for caregivers and loved ones. We need a cure and we need it fast. Please donate whatever you can afford. Thank you from the bottom of my hurting heart.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
