Alzheimer’s first attacked our family with my Nana. She was one of the sweetest, most giving people I’ve ever met. She spoiled every member of her family her whole life and she loved us so much. Watching her disappear and having to watch my Pop try to take care of her was so painful.
Our family has been struck again by this horrible disease and now my mom is the victim. My mom was a strong and brilliant woman and it has turned her into a very confused and aggressive person. My poor dad struggles every day to take care of her and it is a nightmare for everyone. The caregivers are the ones who suffer this disease the most and I am walking to honor not only my my mom and Nana but I am walking to honor my pop and my dad because this nasty disease is harming them more.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
