Walk to End Alzheimer's Walk to End Alzheimer's Event Home

Welcome to My Personal Page

When my maternal grandmother started showing signs of Alzheimer's Disease, my parents renovated their home to create a space for her to move in.  She lived with us for several years and during this time was when I learned of the devastating effects of this awful disease.  My once bubbly, joyful, always-singing Scottish grandmother began forgetting who people were and eventually retreated into herself.  We made great efforts to draw her out whenever we could, but the disease stole her anyway.  

At the time, my father told us to take notes, as he believed our mother would go the same way.  Prescient, he was.  My happy, active, lovely 87yo mother has thus retreated the way her mother did years before.  

Please join with me and millions of others to help eradicate this awful disease.
