I have utilized the Alzheimer's Association's services during a difficult time, and they are so helpful and comprehensive. My Mom has been struggling with mental capacity for years but was officially diagnosed with Alzheimer's this year and it has been a rough go of it, no doubt. One of the first things I did was spend days on alz.org! It's an essential resource and I am thankful to be joining the walk, whether I raise $2, $20, or $200. It just feels good to be able to do SOMETHING to combat Alzheimer's, as it feels so much like it's sort of a hopeless situation. I am grateful for all the work the association does, so this is the least I can actually do. Looking forward to it, despite being overwhelmed by what the illness has done - this walk is a good thing ;-)
I am doing this walk with my kiddos and any family/friends who want to join in! My mom has been "Mamma Sue" to my kids since they were born. While it's hard to slowly lose your mom, the hardest part for me is watching my kids see their Grandma slip away. Of course, there have been great times and still are many to come! ...but that's just the part that has affected me the most. Here's to all the grandmas in the world who have loved and cared for their grandchildren! It's to be treasured for sure.
No fundraising necessary if you want to walk with me! I'm so glad to support everything the Alzheimers association does, but that's not the only reason I am walking. I am walking to show my kids what community means, that it's ok to talk about your feelings and that we love Mamma Sue, whether she knows it or not ;-) Whatever your reason or cause, it feels good to be a team and we can support each other!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
