Two years ago, my dad, or Kent as most of you know him, was diagnosed with "Severe Alzheimers." While the diagnosis didn't come as a shock because we observed a steady loss of memory and behavior changes, the word Alzehimers hit like a ton of bricks.
As all the world knows, Kent is a brilliant human. He is a master of composing music, crafting words, and creating visuals unlike anyone can. Not only can he create, but he can also deliver. On stage, he compels a crowd with his voice and presence. I miss seeing that part of him. He is the most creative and inspiring person in my life. I attribute all my success to this man.
This diagnosis has stolen his ability to be who he is. I hate that now for the second time, my family faces a diagnosis with no cure. We've remained quiet about my dad. It's hard to talk about. But I also know we are not alone. There are millions of people affected by ALZ every day. I ask you to join us by either walking or contributing to our team. With the support of caring people, a cure will be found. This diagnosis will no longer be attributed to a long and unpleasant journey.
