Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we, the kids, grandkids, great grandkids, and friends of Marvie Grady.
Mom was diagnosed in 2011. Our Dad passed away in 2013. We managed increasingly complicated care with prayer, creativity, and sibling support until her progression required moving to a memory care facility in 2018. Mom no longer uses intelligible sentences, but we see and feel "her" talking, teasing, laughing. But watching the slow degradation of an incredibly dynamic woman, mother, and grandmother is so hard.
Mom lost two siblings to dementia. We have at least two cousins currently diagnosed. Several other cousins caring for a spouse with it. A good friend in memory care due to early onset Alzheimer's, and more friends than we care to count who have lost parents to it, or are caring for them now.
More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimers. We have to find a cure to eradicate this debilitating, life sucking disease. Please join us and walk together to find a cure. And if you are unable to walk, please consider donating, to save your own children from this heartache.
Please Join our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
As mom always said, "Whatever you give to others will come back to you tenfold". So far she's been right.
