This year is tough as we now walk in memory of our dad/grandpa/brother/son/friend, Jim Peters. Jim was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia in his 50s. The toll this illness had on him and his family was devastating. For many years we watched this horrific disease take away the pieces of Jim that we loved dearly. On April 13th, 2021, we said our final goodbyes. He died just weeks after turning 66 years old. Although we had begun the longest goodbye a decade before, nothing prepared us for the finality of his death. Dementia took so much from Jim and from all of us. We must fight to find a cure, to find a way for individuals and families to survive this horrific disease. That is why we walk. Jim's granddaughters were robbed of a phenomenal grandpa and Jim was denied the opportunity to spoil them with love as we know he would have. They never knew him healthy and whole. We walk so other little girls and boys won't have to endure such a tremendous loss. Jim's children are left trying to access the memories that came before the disease. We walk so others won't have to watch their loved ones suffer for so long that they have to work to remember the good that came before the suffering. We can't do it alone. In fact, right now it's hard to put one foot in front of the other. Still, we fight just as Jim did. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ongoing support in this fight against Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Let's work together to find a cure!
