My "why". My Alzheimer's journey began in 2001 when I moved in with my grandmother Eva, to assist with her care. She began suffering from dementia and needed support. She was the backbone of our family, our northern compass, and she did everything and anything for all of her family. In 2003 my mother moved her into their home to provide full-time care. Eva was one of the most amazing women I have had the honor of not only knowing, but calling Grandmother. So watching her decline over the years was devastating. Tragically, we lost her in 2006 like so many others.
In 2018 I became aware of the Alzheimer's Association and I knew I had to become involved. In 2018 I began volunteering as part of the Planning Committee for the Livingston County Walk to End Alzheimer's and have been partnering with them ever since, in hopes to find a cure and put an end to this devastating disease.
I walk in honor of my grandmother, Eva McGuire, and for all the families that are currently suffering. Let us be a beacon of hope and Light the Way for others as we honor those we have lost.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
