Who do you know who was, or is now affected by Alzheimer's? Who do you need to help?
For the 20th year, I am leading Memory Joggers in the fight to end Alzheimer's. I am honoring my Mom, Alice Greenwood, who passed away from complications of Alzheimer's on July 9, 2008. This is Alice in mid-stages of Alzheimer's. She was still laughing and loving, but had been robbed of the ability to recognize people, places and things. Not long after, her abilities to communicate, walk, bathe herself were all stripped away.
Within the past two years, my nephew-in-law's and niece-in-law's lost their Moms, Delores Bauman and Donna Yineman, to Alzheimer's and Dementia. We said good bye to Betty Hinds and Rose Verrilli, both very beautiful women inside and out, due to complications of Dementia. I am very sad to add to this list George Demos, the brother-in-law of a dear friend and long time supporter, Ginney McAdams. Friends are suffering, families are suffering. We MUST put a stop to Alzheimer's.
Progress is made each and every day, yet the treatments are lacking and a cure has not been found. We can and will win, but not without your help.
Join Memory Joggers in the fight, Sept. 17, 10am at the Summerfest grounds. If you can't join, please make a donation. We're making a difference each and every day. Let's win!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
