My Mother, Fern, suffered from Alzheimer's/Dementia for over 30 years, with becoming a nursing home resident for the last 12 years of her life. It was heartbreaking to see my Mother, a beautiful, very energetic person, slowly suffer the effects of this dreaded disease. Over the years, she lost her ability to recognize her loved ones and was unable to care for herself, always relying on caregivers to provide her basic necessities to sustain her life.
I am walking and participating with the Alzheimer's Association to raise funds to support the cause of Alzheimer's care, support, and research. The Alzheimer's mission is to "eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's."
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please join the walk and/or make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's! Together, we can make a difference!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
