I choose to walk because this is a disease that has greatly impacted my family. My maternal grandmother Marion Sambataro had been diagnosed with dementia the last twelve years of her life. This disease changed her in many ways. My family and I cared for her every day. It is hard to see how much a person's brain can change and how quickly this can happen. My grandmother was a strong woman. She was the kindest most loving person I have ever known. As part of my grandmother's digression, she was no longer able to chew food, because of this she consumed her meals in a blended liquid form which my mother concocted every day. She became very tired and lethargic.
I walk because I want a cure to be found. After seeing how Alzheimer's and dementia can rob a person of themselves I don't want people to have to see or feel that way. Enough is enough, it's time to raise money and awareness to wipe out Alzheimer's and Dementia.
Any donations to the Alzheimer’s Association is greatly appreciated!
