I am a very passionate when it comes to finding a cure from Alzheimer's disease because someone that I loved battled the disease and unfortunately lost her battle. Also, I believe that there are many misconceptions going around about this disease. The biggest misconception is that everyone's battle is the same. Which is very untrue...everyone's battle with Alzheimer's is different. Here is my grandmother's journey...
My grandmother Lucille was diagnosed with Alzheimers in the year 2003. Her Alzheimer's journey started with forgetting simple everyday tasks, like remembering recipes that she made over 1000 times, it progressed into repeating things she previously said in a conversation, to trying to put a name to a face that she saw every day to forgetting how to feed herself. My grandmother's journey was unique because she never had an angry outburst when battling the disease. You could see the frustration in her eyes when you had to politely tell her she already said something and when she tried so hard to put a name to your face...but, she never once yelled. She told someone close to her "I know there is something wrong with me and there is nothing I can do about it." My grandmother put her trust in the Lord and battled the disease for 10 long years. My grandmother Lucille lost her battle in 2003.
I am her legacy and I hope that I have the strength that she had to help find a cure for this disease. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
