It is always hard to ask friends and family to donate money, and especially hard in these trying times we are facing now. Unfortunately diseases like Alzheimer’s do not just go away when money is tight.
I refer to Alzheimer’s as a family disease, because it impacts the entire family of the individual who has been diagnosed with the disease. It is physically, emotionally and in some cases financially draining on the family.
The hard fact is that one in three people will be affected by this disease, whether they fight it themselves, have a family member fight it, or they are a caregiver for someone who has it.
My family started participating in the Wenatchee Walk to End Alzheimer’s in 2015.
I walk for my mom. December of 2017, after a seven and a half year battle with this horrific disease I lost my mom.
I walk for every mom, dad, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, husband, wife, brother, or sister that this horrific disease has touched.
I walk in hope that soon no family will have to face this horrific disease.
I walk for memories, because memories matter. Memories make us who we are and shape us into who we will be.
I walk for my mom, who I miss everyday. I Love you Mom
I truly believe that we are close to finding the cure, but the continued research takes money, and that is where we come in.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
