Jean Carol Anthony (Major's Mom)
January 2020 we were suppose to plan a birthday celebration for Mom, instead out of concern for her then unusual behavior her young physician confirm the worse news. My mom was diagnosed with onset dementia. This phenomenal energetic larger than life women was now reduced to aged memories. Long term in fact, short term noticeable fading everyday. My mom is slipping away. I cherish any and every day with her, although she can't recall our conversations. To hear her tell a story is a treat for me even repeated over and over. I'm uncertain if she will live long enough to see a cure for this dreadful disease. I pray that new unfound discoveries, endless possibilities of science and advocates such as yourselves, volunteers, friends and family support all over this world, seek to find a cure or minimize the progression of the disease. I dread the day she forgets who I am. Show your support and help me to raise awareness. Join me in the fight for Jean Carol and many, many more suffering from this illness. Make a contribution large or small. The walk will be held in the fall. However, I'm willing to walk within a 100 mile radius. Stay tuned for updates and notices.
