This is our eighth year participating in the Walk. We walk to honor Paul, husband, father, son, brother, and friend to so many. Paul was diagnosed with early onset at the age of 52 in 2015. He passed away August 29,2021. It was terrible to witness the mental and physical decline in a man who was so strong and full of life, love and charm. We are reminded daily of the positive impact he had on all of us with his unwavering positive attitude. He remains our phoenix rising!
We also walk to honor Paul's grandmother, Nonna who had Alzheimer's. We walk to honor Paul's father who passed away with dementia. We walk to honor Alicia, Paul's mother-in-law who had dementia.
While it was too late for a cure for Paul, we walk with hope for a cure for our children. Join our team, Phoenix Rising 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.
