Here's the reality. Mom loves cheese danishes. She loves her kids. She loves her great big family. She thinks she works at her memory care clinic, just like did for so many years owning her own business and raising 7 kids. Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011. She took care of my dad for well over a decade, and never got her "second chance" to kick up her heels, due to Alzheimer's. She inspires me to this day, I love her fiercely, and it makes me so sad that it could not have been different for her, us, and the grandkids she will never know, even though she's still "here". And we are seeing this disease get it's tentacles into other family members. We need to bring about an end to Alzheimer's. It has ravaged too many for far too long.
Currently, more than 6 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.I'm helping lead the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, Saturday Oct. 2nd, starting at Seattle Center.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please consider making a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Make it honor of your own loved one, or for your kids, so that they do not find themselves in the position of making decisions about YOUR life.
