I met my ‘second mom’, Vanda, 25 years ago on a trip to Machu Picchu, Peru. SWe have had some amazing adventures together! We have been inside the Great Pyramid, practiced yoga on a boat on the Nile River in Egypt, soaked in the hot springs in Costa Rica, explored the beautiful sights in Guatemala and Honduras, and of course fell in love with the magical Machu Picchu. Unfortunately, in October of 2019, our adventures together had come to a halt as she had begun her own journey with the devastating disease of Alzheimer's.
She was recently admitted to a memory care facility in Durango, Colorado, close by her daughter, Catherine.
But, Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping, and so, neither are we! In honor of this remarkable woman, I have created ‘Team Vanda’ to participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in San Diego on October 8th, to raise funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease. The funds will help allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
More families facing Alzheimer’s need us now more than ever and with your help, we can be there for them. Please donate and join ‘Team Vanda’ as a participant! Together we can help end Alzheimer’s.
Thank you in advance! xo
