When I was little, my Dad would come home from work at lunch. After eating, he would rock me and put me down for my nap. I am pretty sure he sneaked in a quick nap too! I always remember my Dad's hands on the rocking chair. When Alzheimer's took away my Dad's memories, thoughts, ability to speak and recognition of loved ones, it devastated our lives, especially his. What Alzheimer's couldn't change was my Dad's hands. Especially in these times of social distancing, I am grateful for the memory of my Dad's hands.
Whether we gather to Walk in September or not, I will continue to honor my Dad through awareness, fundraising and volunteering with the Alzheimer's Association. The responsibility to ensure this disease is minimized and eventually obsolete is heavy, but if not you and me, then who? Join me, one of Earl's Girls, in realizing a world without Alzheimer's through a Walk to End Alzheimer's!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
