Alzheimer's wasn't kind to mom. At first it was just being forgetful. Then degrees of paranoia would come and go. The worst was when she didn't recognize me. Sometimes she'd tell stories of her younger life. I didn't know if they were her memories or something dreamed up. The worst lasted a little over her last year. One evening during a visit, which turned out to be my last, she remembered me. She held me and told me she loved me. I hold that memory close to my heart.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
