Our life was forever changed when we learned that Molly’s mother Janice was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Though we don’t share the same blood, Janice has always been like a mother in my eyes as she embraced me like family from day one. She is an incredibly energetic, compassionate, brave, selfless, and overall genuine human being that won’t hesitate to spark up a conversation with a stranger just to complement them or ask how they’re doing. For those who have been fortunate enough to meet her, it goes without saying that she is truly one-of-a-kind.
On October 9th we will be walking in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s for Janice as well as the 47+ million people living with and the millions more affected by Alzheimer’s disease. COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Alzheimer’s patients who are primarily in the elderly high-risk bracket, yet their health is dependent on mind stimulation through human connection and socialization. Many nursing homes, assisted-living, and memory care centers have been on lock-down since March 2020, preventing Alzheimer’s patients from connecting with their caregivers/loved ones, socializing, or even going on walks. The Alzheimer’s community needs support now more than ever and this is your opportunity to make a difference.
I understand that these unprecedented times have financially impacted most, but if you are fortunate enough to give, I would appreciate it if you could donate to my page. All donations go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association and will make a difference, no matter how big or small. Even if you are unable to give (that perfectly fine!), I ask that you consider signing up for our team (it’s free!) and joining the Alzheimer’s community on the virtual walk to raise awareness for such a worthy cause.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
