My mom was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's in 2016. Managing this has been one of the hardest things my siblings and I have done. To her credit, she taught us to approach challenges together, and with as much humor as possible. We do our best.
Our family's story is not unique. If anything, we are among the lucky ones who have had both each other and resources to work with in the face of this terrible disease. We will be walking on Saturday for our mom, but also for all the families who are in similar -- and often, much more difficult - circumstances.
Also, this picture is from 1991 - which, I mean - another lifetime...
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
