My beautiful mother Sherry was compassionate, talented, smart, loving and dedicated. She began showing signs of Alzheimer's while in her mid 50s and was finally diagnosed in 2010 at age 64. Alzheimer's stole the last 20 years of her life--the end of her career, her retirement, her judgment, her ability to communicate, her memories, her ability to walk, and the ability to feed herself. She finally passed from this horrible disease in January of 2022, at age 75.
I continue to participate in Walk to End Alzheimer's because the Alzheimer's Association was there for me when my mom was first diagnosed, and I want their support to be available to the hundreds of thousands of other families in the US who will start this terrible journey in 2023. No one should have to fight this battle alone.
Thank you for supporting me in the fight against Alzheimer's.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
