This year, I am walking in honor of four wonderful women who have passed from this devastating disease.
Laverne influenced me as a young girl with her wisdom, sensibility and wit. In my teens, I saw Joan as the stylish, strong mom who forged her own path. In my twenties, Mary Jane was a role model for me as a smart, passionate woman who was committed to education and social justice, and Lillian demonstrated to me her grace, kindness and perseverance.
Each of their daughters has been my close friend for some 40 years.
Please support my efforts on behalf of the 5.8 million people living with this devastating disease. This disease takes and takes and your support will fund research and provide free programs and services for those families impacted by it. Thank you so very much.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
