I'm walking to end Alzheimer's in my lifetime. My mother passed from Alzheimer's on 3-13-13. Mom’s Alzheimer’s dementia crept up on us slowly –forgetting an ingredient in a recipe she had made thousands of times before, not remembering directions to her favorite store or not remembering the name of someone she had recently seen. The disease progressed over many years and over those years there were many good-byes to things she had known how to do just a few months or days before.
Mom went from being a vibrant woman who loved her family to the shell of herself who didn't remember any of her children, grandchildren or friends. Until you experience that happening, you can't imagine how it feels. When she looked in the mirror, she saw a stranger.
I will be joining the Walk to End Alzheimer's held at the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, August 22, 2020. Please consider donating and joining us. To Donate click on the DONATE button above. To come to the Walk, click on JOIN MY TEAM.
