When I was a little girl I adored my Grandmother and I was so excited she lived with us. Grandma always had time for me and everyday after school she would sit and talk to me about my day and we would share a sweet Reese’s Cup from a special box she had in her dresser. As time passed Grandma started to change and at night she would pack her suitcase and demand we take her to the train station. She yelled at us for stealing her jewelry and tying it into knots and we stopped sharing Reese’s Cups. Eventually, she had to move into a more secure home, away from me. I didn’t understand what was happening, I just missed my special friend. What I didn’t know at the time was my Grandma was suffering from dementia and my life would forever be changed because of this devastating disease.
Today I am 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.
