See my Mom's story on our Team Page. I miss my dearest Mother. It has been a difficult year for the world. So much loss, pain and suffering. I do not know how anyone who has Alzheimer's can survive the fear, confusion and loneliness during the lock downs. It breaks my heart. I do not know if my Mother would have survived it but take comfort in knowing we were with her in the end before the world went crazy with COVID. Thank God for small blessings. I know this loss has been hard on my family too as there was no ability to gather, celebrate her life as a group, and mourn and laugh together as she would want us to do. I am so thankful for the time we had together but realize I have been mourning the loss for years of the Mother I knew growing up as this disease robbed her and me of her advice, wisdom and deep conversations we should have had time to have. I realized this too late. She still had love and laughs and I thank the Lord for that everyday. Your donation will help to find a cure for this horrible disease and provide support for the caregivers who sacrifice so much to care for their loved ones, at the expense of their own health. It will support finding a cure and for enrichment programs reduce fear, increase joy, and make them smile and laugh. My Mother really enjoyed Joe's Club https://myjoesclub.org/ adult day care supported by the Brevard Alzheimer's Foundation, Inc. (BAFI) and it gave my father 5 hours a day during the week to take care of the household, shop, clean, cook and rest in preparation for very long nights caring for my Mother. They only asked for a nominal fee which made it affordable for my parents. This Alzheimer's day care saved my father's life as he previously ran himself into the ground in exhaustion. It increased my Mother's joy as she declined. Thank you all again for supporting my walk.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
