Many years ago I was the new girl in our neighborhood. One particular neighbor came to introduce herself. Seeing that I was pregnant, she became extremely happy about having a baby on "her street". Little did I know how important she would become to me and my little family. She became MeMe to my kids. Seeing her go from a very energetic, independent woman to someone who would call me repeatedly to ask the same question, needing reassurance or call me so scared of what she was "seeing". She lost her battle with Alzheimer's in 2014, just a few years later I started a new job dealing with Alzheimer's disease on a daily basis. I became a Life Enrichment Coordinator at Beth Have, in their Alzheimer's unit. I knew very little about the disease at first but I became very invested in learning more. I have learned Alzheimer's disease has no set course, no distinct path, and it can happen to anyone. I have loved and lost many precious residents to this disease. This is such a scary and heartbreaking disease, knowing that the Alzheimer's Association is making great progress in finding a cure, gives so much hope to those out there going through it. With your help, we can become one step closer to finding a cure!
