Hey there.. As many of you know, I'm Ally!
I have worked with the elderly for the last 8 years and volunteered in a memory care facility before that. I have held the hands of those who saw me as their daughter and brushed the hair of those who saw me as their mother. I have rocked many baby dolls to sleep so my patients could get some rest because "their baby kept them up all night." I have been lucky enough to hear the same story over and over again; and have always found something new to love every time.
Alzheimer's is very heart breaking to watch not only the individual to go through but their family as well. This leaves the everyone confused, and the families left with questions that may not ever be answered. You do not know true pain until you have to grieve the loss of someone who is still alive.
This is my 4th year participating in raising money for this cause. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 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.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's, and God Bless!
