I joined the Walk to End Alzheimer's to honor the memory of my mother, Ruth Koenig. Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about a year before she passed away. We watched mom slowly deteriorate unto she finally lost the battle and passed away. As an Elder Law Attorney I helped families work through dementia issue, but it never hits you until you face dementia with a loved one. Now it real to me and because of what we have gone through I am able to help more families as they walk a similar path.
I walk to honor my mom and as a way to thank her for all she's done for me over the years, and I walk to support finding a cure for this dreadful disease. I love you mom, and can't wait to see you again when we are reunited in Heaven!
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
