I'm leading the way to end Alzheimer's in honor of my parents, Dorthy L,, Marty D., Ruth R., Sharon B., Gloria K., Ruth B., Sonia G. June S.,Barbara K. and too many more to mention After my parent's death i got involved with ALZ. in St. Louis and carried on here in Fl. i have worked as a companion for the elderly who were at beginning states or already had it. It is hardest for the family and friends as most of you know for yourselves since you have or had someone close to you that has it or died from it. It is time we all got together so our younger generation doesn't have to go through what we might have to go through or our children as they take care of us if we are lucky. The hardest thing in my life was when i came to Fl. to visit my mother and she was calling my name, i was sitting right next to her and kept saying i'm right here, she didn't even turn to look at me, had no idea who i was and just kept calling. This was the first Mother's day i had with her in a few years and unfortunately had to make the hardest decision of my life. Do i leave her, or do i go to my two year old great nephew's funeral in Chicago. Needless to say i spoke to family and friends and had to leave. like i have said, it is the hardest on the care takers, family and friends
Please, let all pull together and get rid of this, so NO OTHER GENERATION HAS TO WORRY.
THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME FOR YOUR SUPPORT
We as most of us are "Baby Boomers" should realize that we will be the LARGEST NUMBER GETTING THIS AWFUL DISEASE..
