Please support our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. This walk and the name of our team - Patty's Power Squadron - organized by Anna (THANK YOU ANNA!) - is in honor of my mother, Patty, who passed away in February of 2021. Anna and I have walked for 7 of the last 8 years together in the Walk to End Alzheimer's (maybe more???). We increased our team size AGAIN in 2021 - our biggest team every! Thank you Martha! You are a blessing to your family and an angel on earth. Last year we welcomed Dawn and Jennifer! Yay! And also Peggy and Phillip! Every single one of us has had a family member touched by this disease. I am astonished by how many people we know and see every day have a family member devastated by this disease. You never know. Then you begin talking and realizing how prevalent this disease is across the world. Wow. I am hoping to increase our team for 2022 to continue our fight to #EndAlz!
My Mother was a teacher, both professionally and personally. She was beautiful, kind and generous but had to endure the cruelty of dementia. It is a complete tragedy that she couldn’t live out all of her years with her dignity and mind intact. Alzheimer's strips these things away like an onion until there is nothing left but tears. This is a terrible disease that is heartbreaking and exhausting. Please support our walk to help to find a cure and provide support for all those caregivers who find that last drop of energy every minute of every day fighting to care for their loved ones...whom may no longer even recognize us. Thank you for all of your support. Mary (Patty's daughter)
