My Dad, W. B. King, lost his battle with this horrible disease over a year ago. Watching him get frustrated as the disease progressed was very hard. Watching him not recognizing any family members was even harder. Watching him slowly lose his battle at the end was the hardest.
Daddy was always the one you went to for help to figure out ANY problem you had. He had a knack for rigging the impossible and genius ways of making everything work. He always had sound advise on keeping right from wrong and making sure if you did wrong you made it right. He did everything he could to fight the disease; entered drug trials, did memory games on his computer, told us what he did NOT want to happen, and fought hard for over 10 years.
Research did not move fast enough for him but we walk to help others fight the disease. There are still NO cure for Alzheimer's but there are ways to prolong the life expectancy and hopefully a cure will be found soon.
My Daddy is my hero! Just because he lost his fight does not mean we will stop fighting for a cure! Please help us and others to #ENDALZ
