I lost my mother Betty Moser to Alzheimer December 1, 2015. I took care of her for 10 years. It was the hardest thing I have ever done! To watch someone you love wither away, forgetting who you are is indescribable. Knowing she would rather die than forget who you are. My mother wanted to know what was going to happen to her. We watched a special on Alzheimer's during which she asked me if this was really going to happen. I said yes and we began to cry. Typical Betty she said, if and when I get that way shoot me because I don't what to forget the people I love. I miss the mother I had, I could not ask for any better. I prayed everyday for God to give me the strength to continue do the best job I could. Taking care of her was a dedication of Love and respect. Everyday when I forget something I wonder if this will happen to me. I pray that it never happens to me or anyone else. Please give to help end this awful disease.
Curranty 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.
