The October 8 Asheville Walk is coming up before you know it. Please help support Ending Alzheimer's through a donation to this site.
People ask - did they forget your name? - If only it were that simple! Dementia is a syndrome in which there is progressive deterioration in cognitive function beyond what might be expected in normal aging. Check out "Know the 10 Signs" on the Alz.org site to see the difference. Alzheimer's affects memory, thinking, orientation, calculation, comprehension, learning capacity, and judgment.
This is a fairly recent picture of me and my brother, whom I am very sad to say was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease last May. I'm walking and volunteering with the Alzheimer's Assn in honor of him, our parents and Aunt Bernie and too many others in my family tree who have been affected by this wretched disease. I love them all, and want to do what I can so someday no one else will have to experience this. Please help me do this with your donation on this page.
Thank you for joining the movement! - from Lynn, my family, and others who are affected or care about someone who is.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
