Audrey Darby, is the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of women who fell victim to the disease. Her mother, Dorothy Cunningham, has suffered from advanced Alzheimers for several years. Once lively, energetic, and engaged, Dorothy now no longer speaks or recognizes family members. Dorothy was always an inspiration to her daughter in all things. Yet in one of Alzheimers many cruelties Audrey is deprived of the simple joy of sharing all of the twists and triumphs of her life and family with her mom. As many families know, this type of long goodbye is heartbreaking.
At Darbys for Dorothy, we walk for all the daughters, sons, nephews, nieces, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers and families who see their loved ones fade from them in plain sight. We Walk To End Alzheimers!
