In 2018 my dad, Robert "Bob" Mulich, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease. He's been slipping away the past few years, but this year the decline has been significant.
A self proclaimed "jack of all trades, master of none" he enjoyed fixing and working on all things. Whether it was a banged up car (I tested that skill several times), carpentry, electrical, or plumbing, he could do it all. This disease is slowly taking his identity and his dignity. It's frustrating for him, and heartbreaking for those who know and love him. It's devastating for me that my son will never truly know the amazing man that raised me. We're lucky, today he still recognizes his family, but due to the level of care he requires and safety concerns he can no longer live at home.
He cared for his Father (my Grandpa) through the duration of this disease, and we will be there for him. So, please support me and our family on October 2nd when we walk in honor of my Dad to find a cure.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
