Dear Family and Friends!
PLEASE READ MY LETTER AND CONSIDER THE REQUEST.Our annual effort to raise funds to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease has begun. Lori, Matthew and I have been participating in this endeavor since 2014. My wonderful husband, John, was struggling with Alzheimer’s when we first began our team participation. “BANKING ON A MEMORY” is our Team name. “Memory,” very sad that loss of it is a terrible affliction of this horrid disease! It is five years since John passed, but my memory has vivid recall of our experiences in that nightmare journey!
You may now be caring for a loved one with dementia. Or, know of someone who is caring for a loved one suffering with this dread disease. It is a FRIGHTENING FACT THAT A GREAT MANY YOUNG PEOPLE ARE BEING DIAGNOSED. This week, I learned of a man in his 50’s in a memory care facility!
The Annual Walk to raise funds and awareness for a breakthrough in this fight against Alzheimer’s and other dementia will be held on Saturday, October 9. We anticipate being able to walk in person at the National Mall this year. But there will be other options.
