My father-in-law, Neal Thompson, was a wonderful man. He loved God, his family and music. Singing praises to God was his favorite thing to do. Even when Alzheimer's had ravaged his mind, he could still be moved by music. The hardest part was to watch him slowly slip away from us and there was nothing we could do. My mother-in-law took care of him in their home until the day he took his last breath. She gave her whole heart to provide him with loving care every day.
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.
