Alzheimer’s. Most people don’t have to speak more than that word for another to understand the heartbreak and devastation it brings. Watching a person you love so dearly mentally slip away right before your eyes, not knowing the day they won’t recognize you anymore is beyond words.
I’ll never forget the day I went to visit my Gram in the nursing home she was at. She just kept asking me over and over, “am I a bad person? I don’t think I am.” She was like a little kid. I sobbed for hours after I left. I couldn’t imagine what was going on in her head to make her feel that way.
I pray, one day, no one will ever have to live with Alzheimer’s and their family won’t be left empty from the loss.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
