I am asking for donations to honor my mother, Linda Jones, who we lost last year due to this terrible disease. Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s seven years ago. My mom was so full of life and always had a smile. She never met a stranger and would do anything to help you. She loved to talk, sing and laugh. This horrible disease took all of those things from her. You see, one of the first things she lost was her word bank. It was so frustrating for her. Watching her struggle to find the words that were there, but she could not get them out. Finally, she just stop speaking. Alzheimer’s could not take her smile away though. I loved when I would go see her and when her eyes would connect with mine, I would get that beautiful smile of hers. Mom loved her family more than anything. She loved her grandchildren so much and loved being with them, spending time with them, laughing and being silly even when they were grown. Her family was so special to her. My mom was my friend, my teacher, my warrior, my hero and I lost her way to soon. Please help find a cure for this disease that robs you of your time with your family members. This disease truly effects everyone not just the individual. Please donate and help find a cure.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
