Unfortunately, Dad fell and broke his hip Tuesday morning. It has been heartbreaking to watch him suffer and not be able to communicate what is going on with his body. Alzheimer's has robbed my father of words and left him with a debilitating aphasia. Dad is one of the smartest people I know but the Alzheimer's has taken that and left him only able to communicate with facial expressions and nonsense words. (For a positive note, Dad has had hip surgery and is doing well.)
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
