I am walking to honor my Mother and Godfaher who we lost to Alzheimers, and in support of my cousin and his wonderful wife/caregiver.
In 2003 my family lost my Godfather to Alzheimer's.
In 2009 my Mother came to live with us after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. After three years I experienced the hardest decision I ever had to make. We could no longer provided the care Mother needed and had to place her in a nursing home.
2013 my Mother lost her battle with Alzheimer’s.
My cousin has since been diagnosed.
This is a very devastating disease. If you or someone you love have not been affected, I pray you never are!
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
