I was with her as the disease slowly robbed her of her memories and abilities to live a full, active and social life. I knew there was no cure for Alzheimer's and my Mom was slowly fading away....a painful, frustrating, angering, confusing time that brought many changes. At this time I slowly found a way to accept this disease and the changes it made with my Mom's personality as she lost her independence which she so valued and loved. I am so grateful and blessed to have been able to spend much special, quality time with my Mom the last few years of her incredible life!!
I am participating in Modesto's Walk to End Alzheimer's in Memory and in Honor of my Mother, Vivian V. Theisen and I invite you to join my team to help create awareness of this disease in our community and beyond. The funds our team raise will help with research, caregivers, education and much more as finding a cure is our ultimate goal! Thank you!!
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support.
Currently, 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.
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 Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
