It's been 6 1/2 years since Lisa was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We have had the sobering privilege of watching Johnny (Gene's brother) so lovingly and faithfully care for Lisa through each stage of this dreadful disease. We've been there to support him, but he's never asked for much, until now! He has finally asked for help and we are more than ready to help him!
 
JOHNNY HAS ASKED US TO CREATE A TEAM FOR THE 2020 ALZHEIMER'S WALK. As Walk Chairman for the Treasure Valley, Johnny wants to significantly increase the number of teams, participants and funds raised this year. Due to Covid, it will be a Virtual Walk, on Oct. 3rd. You simply walk in your neighborhood, or on a trail, or anywhere you'd like that day, in solidarity and support for Alzheimer's research and the goal of finding a cure!
 
We hope that you will join our team as we support Johnny and honor Lisa for all that she has been through. The cumulative effects of this awful disease have become much more evident in Lisa lately. Here's an update on Lisa:
 
Because of the Covid pandemic, the Memory Care facility where she lives has been 'locked down' (no visitors) since mid-March. However, Johnny did get to see her once (a 30 min. walk outside) in June. Lisa is now totally blind and she does not remember Johnny anymore. She has declined rapidly in the last few months, but with the addition of a couple medications, the days are less stressful for her. While it is comforting to know she is safe and well cared for, it is still the most heartbreaking scenario to watch someone you love slowly disappear, right before your eyes, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.
 
But there is something we CAN do - our donations will help fund Alzheimer's care, support and research to find a cure and eliminate this disease so our children and grandchildren will not have to go through all that Lisa has had to endure.
 
The end of Alzheimer's starts with all of us! Thank you for your support!
 
Love,
Gene and Danell
