Fighting Alzheimer's is something I am extremely passionate about. My great-grandfather died from this disease, and, as I work in an assisted living community, I have gotten to know so many people who are living or who have died from Alzheimer's. When I walk and fundraise, I do it for all the residents I have gotten to know and love over the past 6 years. They teach me so much; because of them, I even listen to their generation's music more than my own! Judy Garland is definitely a favorite.
I would love nothing more than to help them in any way I can. And if I could accomplish one thing with this, it would be to raise awareness for the disease. So many people are aware of the disease, but not the severity of it, or the ins and outs of it. And people don't know that numbers are doubling, and more and more people are diagnosed every day. I will not stop fighting until we have a cure and our first Alzheimer's survivor.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
