My nana, Herminia "Minnie" Rodriguez was an amazing cook, a social butterfly, and a warm, loving grandma and mom. She introduced me to Frank Sinatra, and taught me about the joys of making friends with strangers. I can still see her smile, and the way her eyes would light up when I would make her laugh. When my nana first started forgetting things, we thought it was as a normal part of aging. However, things got worse and worse. My nana had Alzheimer's for 10 years, and at the start of her journey, I shared my bedroom with her. I saw this disease forever change her, and later, her brother and her sister. Now her other brother, my great uncle, is living with Alzheimer's. 2020 has been a particularly challenging year, and I know there are various causes that we are donating to. This year's Walk to End Alzheimer's is virtual, and I know our team appreciates any small donation you can send our way to help with the fight to end Alzheimer's disease. Let's help find a cure.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
