This will be my 4th Walk to End Alzheimer's. I am again walking in honor of my father, John Hughes. He suffered from Dementia for a long time, and passed away in 2009. I miss him every day. My mother, with the help of the family, took care of him at home. The love and care she showered upon him knew no bounds. She loved him with every fiber of her being. It was very difficult to watch a vibrant man like him succumb to this debilitating disease. It broke my mother's heart.
My mother, Pat, passed away in August of 2019, and has joined my father, John, in Heaven. I am sure that they will be looking down upon us as we "Walk to End Alzheimer's".
Hopefully, the money raised from this Walk to End Alzheimer's Disease will bring us closer to a cure, so that other families will not have to watch a loved one pass from this horrible disease.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
