Many of you know, our family battled an unsettling diagnosis for a decade that my father received of differing opinions from possible early onset Alzheimer’s disease to posterior cortical atrophy. Regardless the actual diagnosis, the journey was the same and the challenges were there for him and for those caring for him. We loved him all the way through and fortunately were able to keep him home until his last days with hospice care. We honor and remember who he was and the legacy and impact he’s had on so many lives.
My first professional role out of college was with The Alzheimers Association in Lexington by creating activities and programming for individuals with Alzheimer’s or a related disorder in a dementia specific adult day setting. It was a gift to have been given the opportunity to serve and knowledge to understand what seems impossible when dementia impacted our family’s lives. I ask for your support to raise awareness and make a difference in the lives in our community affected by these devastating diseases today.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Thank you for helping make an impact today! XOXO
