For Melvin Marker and Tom Wemhoff

I will walk in support of my dad.  He was always there when I needed him and would do anything to help anyone.  And now I face the reality that he may or may not recognize me or even know who I am, depending on the day.  This disease has taken precious years from my family.  My parents should be enjoying retirement after working all of their lives to support our family.  Instead, they are fighting this horrible disease day in and day out.  Every day is different.  Some days are good, most days aren't great, and some days are really bad.  My dad's spirit is still there.  He has funny ideas and on some days can make light of the situation and laugh about the fact that he just doesn't know or can't remember.  Most days though are frustrating, demoralizing and just plain sad.  It's sad watching him progressively lose his strength.  My dad, the one who opened all the pickle jars, the one who changed all the oil and fixed all the tires, the one who climbed to the top of the bleachers to get a wall seat at all those ball games, at 72 years old is now too weak and confused to even attend a ball game.  I will also walk to support my mom.  His caregiver.  She has selflessly given away precious years to care for someone who she loves that has a disease with no cure.  We must fight to find a cure to End Alzheimer's Disease.  It shouldn't have to end this way.  Together we can make a difference.  - Anney

I walk in support of Tom Wemhoff.  Tom is a dad, a grandpa, a great grandpa, uncle, and a friend to many.  My Mom passed away over 20 years ago.  Tom has faced many personal challenges and now faces a horrible disease, Alzheimer's.  It has been a scary time for my entire family as he faces the disease in the nursing home without the physical contact or visits from the people who love him most, his children.  So I walk for not only him, but for all the people who fight this horrible disease.  We walk in hope of a cure and hopes of brighter futures for us all.  Please join the fight! -Greg
