I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in memory of my wife Cheryl, who I lost to Alzheimer's Disease seven years ago on December 20, 2013. She struggled with the disease for 5 years having been diagnosed at the age of 57. I was her primary caregiver for that time.
That is why I'm a passionate supporter of the Alzheimer's Association. I am the chair of the board and very active in fundraising for the organization. I also speak on the behalf of the Alzheimer's Association discussing the disease as well as giving caregiver tips. If you would ever like a speaker for your organization I would be happy to do so. Additionally if you know of someone going through the trials of being a caregiver whom you believe could use some moral support and advice, please feel free to pass along my name and number 281-222-3347.
I'm happy to tell you that there is life after Alzheimer's. Five years ago July, quite by accident, I met a wonderful woman who is as nice and kind as Cheryl, (something that I never thought would happen). Becky and I were married in May 2016; proof that when one door is closes the Lord opens another. (I must admit that it is terribly dark in that tunnel before the other door opens!)
I'm asking for your support again this year to help us put an end to Alzheimer's. There are million people in the US who are struggling with this horrid disease that has no cure, or way of slowing its progress. Please click the DONATE button to the right to make your gift.
As always, thanks for your support. Don
