On October 29th I will be walking to help raise money for Alzheimer's and dementia research. In early summer, 2021, my dad was diagnosed with Lewy Body dementia. For those who are unfamiliar, it is the type of dementia that Robin Williams had. Very aggressive and extremely ugly. Sadly for our family, Lewy Body dementia is very quick and by the end of the summer our dad was gone, leaving us with the solace that would have been exactly the way he wanted it.
Love your people and when it's exhausting for all, love them even more. Educate yourself and be aware of your options and resources.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
