As my grandmother, Rosemary aged she never lost her spirit. Things got harder for her physically, but she would always say, "No matter what, they cant take away my mind" and that's what helped her process. Eventually though, she was diagnosed with Dementia, she did not have Alzheimer's specifically but Alzheimer's is a form of Dementia. Through out her fight her mind began to slip and that was the most heartbreaking part of this terrible disease. It did eventually take away part of what she held on to... her mind. She was probably one of the most influential people in my life, which is why fighting this disease and any form of it is something I hold near and dear. Working with the elderly and finding a way to have an impact on seniors is what I have chosen as my work and I love it everyday. Especially when I get opportunities such as Walking to End Alzheimer's.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
