This wonderful lady, my mom, Adie Hennessy, died at 98 and spent her latter years living with Alzheimer's disease. It was hard to watch her live this way since she was always so youthful and vibrant and often said she "always wanted to have her wits about her". 1 in 3 seniors die with Alzheimer's and related dementias and 11% of those 65+ have Alzheimer's. 2/3 of all cases are in women. And because the disease can be so prolonged, it can be very difficult on caregivers as well.
Please join me in supporting the Walk to End Alzheimer's in honor of my mom and all the persons struggling with Alzheimer's disease. All funds raised advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
