We are walking to bring awareness to a disease that claimed the lives of both our Grandma and Grandpa over the past year.
Alzheimer's washed away our grandparents’ final years, taking their ability to remember, care for themselves, and mentally process and communicate thoughts.
We walk for the times we watched our Grandma struggling so hard to place your face because she knows she should recognize you, but has no idea who you are. For all the times she couldn’t get a single word out and her efforts turned into fragmented sounds.
We walk for our Grandpa who was independent, selfless and always there to lend a hand to his friends and family. A man who spent his final years taking care of his wife, long suffering from Alzheimer's, before experiencing a rapid onset of dementia himself.
It's hard to fathom waking up not recognizing your husband of 56 years, struggling to remember the names of your 3 kids, or being unable to recall any of the memories you made with your 8 grandchildren.
Please help us to raise awareness and build on the efforts to find a cure by donating today. The end of Alzheimer's starts with you.
We love you Grandma and Grandpa!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
