Our family has been affected by Alzheimer's since mom was diagnosed over 10 years ago! It affects the entire family every day in many ways. It's an absolute horrible disease and something needs to be done to stop it! We have been fortunate that moms disease progression has been unique, to say the least, and we are thankful that she's still the fun-loving person she's always been! Many families can't say that! She lived with us for almost 8 years since my father passed away, up until about 6 weeks ago, when we made the very hard decision to move her to a memory care unit. I'm so happy that she is thriving and loving life, even though she is in a locked memory care unit. She's "the life of the party" as we expected she would be, and it warms my heart to see her engaging in activities and being a social butterfly.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
