I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
******My Mom -Dorothy Marie (Dot) was diagnosed in 2010.
She was a very strong lady that never complained and hid her memory loss for a long time.
She was born in the U.P. in Mohawk, Michigan. She served her country in the U.S. Women's Army Corp (WAC) from 1951-1954 in Frankfort Germany.
She raised 6 children and had 10 grandchildren.
She lost her husband Carl (Kip) September 15, 2011 to cancer. They shared 56 years together.
She was a very active person until this disease robbed her of her independence and memory and eventually her personality and health.
She had a great sense of humor and loved to play cards, watch the Badgers, chat and drink coffee with family and friends and spend time with her grandchildren. She was also proud of being a blood donor for many years and saved ALL of her hearts.
She lost her battle May 23, 2015. *****
She is missed deeply and thought of every day!
Currently, more than 5.7 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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
