It's that time of year again that I walk for a cause that means so much to me. Currently, more than 6 million Americans and Canadians have Alzheimer's and my grandmother is one of them. I grew up next door to my grandmother for most of my life, and she had a huge influence on the woman that I've grown up to become. She was kind and patient, religious and thoughtful, and an amazing baker and cook. Slowly I saw most of those things taken from her by Alzheimer's disease- changing who she is, but never who she was to those that knew her. Now as a woman with a family history of Alzheimer's disease, I am faced with the high reality that I will develop this some day as well.
However, together, we can end Alzheimer's disease and help care for those that currently have it. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
