I always thought the Alzheimer's boogeyman would come out from my father's closet due to the prevalence in his family (24 siblings). After passing away from a heart attack in 2007, I concluded that closet door had shut for good. Much to my family's dismay, Labor Day Weekend 2019, our lives were changed when we woke up to the boogeyman that had come out of my mother's closet instead. Each day, week, month is a constant decline. A stranger now lives in the body of a once caring, loving and amazingly strong women in every way...my best friend, my confidant. Alzheimer's is a horrible disease to the affected loved one and even more so to their family. The Alzheimer's Association is there for both. I would be thrilled to have you participate by walking on our team "TEAM MEMORY MAKERS" If you are unable to physically participate, it would be immensely appreciated if you would consider donating any amount to the cause. I hope to see you then.
