At a young age, my mom and my aunt, Tiffany, moved my Grandma to California from Pennsylvania because she was told she had early-onset Alzheimer's. We moved her into Silverado, a place where she would be taken care of and watched for majority of the day. We visited my Grandma at least once a week, and it was harder to deal with every time we went because things just got worse and worse. She continued to forget about us through these trips and what was even harder was that she was forgetting about my mom and aunt. Watching them go through this, I couldn't help but feel even worse because I couldn't imagine my mother forgetting about me or my siblings. After a few tough years, my Grandma passed in her sleep. She is one of the biggest reasons I felt so connected to Sigma Kappa, and I am so glad I can support and participate in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's. Together, we can work to ending Alzheimer's so that no other families have to go through this. This association uses donations to advance the care, support and research of Alzheimer's. So, if you feel inclined, a donation is very much appreciated, anything helps. Thank you for taking the time to read my Grandma's story.
