In Memory of my precious Mom, Grayce Vanerio
Janis, Jeff and Trevor will once again join the Walk to End Alzheimer's to raise awareness and funds to support services for those with ALZ, and to fund research critical to stop this devastating disease. Given this crazy year, the WALK will look a bit different, but the need to stop this disease is just as important as ever.
Do you know that Alzheimer's is the only disease in the top 10 causes of death in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed? It is the 6th leading cause of death in the US, and over 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer's or some form of dementia. Please help us to raise funds to fight this terrible disease that impacts so many - both those affected and their caregivers.
Grayce went to heaven on February 23, 2014. Alzheimer's disease robbed her of enjoying her last several years of life, as it steadily stole Mom's memories, and damaged the ability of her brain to send basic instructions to her body. My Dad lovingly cared for Mom in the earlier years of the disease, until his death in 2010. I was blessed to have Mom with me after Dad passed, and to continue to give her the love and care she so deserved. We all miss her very much, and know that she is now at peace and in the care of Dad and all those who have gone to heaven before her.
There are many ways you can help! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. You can donate online via the link, or send a check, made out to the Alzheimer's Association using the mail in donation form. If you are local to the Vancouver, Washington / Portland, Oregon area, consider joining our TEAM LOVE and WALK!!
Many thanks to those of you who support the Alzheimer's Association!!
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
In memory of Grayce,
Janis, Jeff and Trevor
