I walk for my Grandma Olive who suffered from this horrible and devastating disease. I also walk for my mother in law, Grandma Lee, and all those affected by Alzheimer's.
My Grandma Olive was a fiesty, generous, intelligent and loving woman. I remember as a child Grandma Olive's white Christmas tree with only pink ornaments, endless games of Yahtzee and Kings in a Corner, all the crocheted outfits and blankets she would make, and Grandma putting my hair in pin curls. During a few of my high school summers I lived with Grandma Olive and worked with her at a court reporting agency. The summers were filled with so many words of wisdom and encouragement and ... daily Mass. I am thankful for those summers as my Grandma started to decline very soon after our time together. It was very difficult to watch her slowly deteriorate and suffer. I am hopeful that we will find a Cure and that no one else will suffer. Let's find a CURE!
I walk with my family and friends and my daughter, Kristine, who has poured her heart and soul into the Alzheimer's Association. Kristine is the Development Manager for the Tampa Walk to End Alzheimer's. I know that Kristine and all the dedicated ALZ members will lead the way to ALZHEIMER'S FIRST SURVIVOR!
I hope you will join my team and walk with me on November 2, 2019. If you can't walk with us I would appreciate any donations to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
