We are Sitty’s Angels. A family of 2nd and 3rd generation Lebanese-Americans. Our family strength is rooted in our sense of culture and our Catholic faith.
For those that might wonder what our team name is all about.. "Sitty" means "grandmother" in Arabic, and all three women we are walking for have been strong, amazing, loving, dedicated and family-centered Sitty's. But first and foremost, they are wives and mothers.
Becky, Janice & Karen- These incredible women, and when we say incredible, we mean the most adoring, loving, and most significant women in our world, are our motivation. Becky passed away in 2006 after battling Alzheimer's for almost 16 years. Janice passed away on Easter Sunday of 2018 - and our most recent loss, Karen, passed away on August 14, 2019.
The 2020 Walk to End Alzheimer's will be our family's 6th year to walk together as a team and as a family in support of all of our loved ones and their caregivers and to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, we are committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support. We will walk for them- as it is forever, now, our purpose as we face this relentless disease head on.
But, we need your support to do OUR part! Please consider making a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. Fundraising dollars also go to local support programs and services.
Thank you for joining the movement--either by walking with us, or making a donation! Together, WE can End Alzheimer's!
Love & Blessings, from our family to yours.
