I remember when my Mom ,Molly, started showing signs of Alzheimer's. It was shortly after undergoing a hip replacement while in a rehabilitation facility . The year was 2015.
My Mom always prided herself on her keen memory because it was. All of us ( children, grandchildren) knew to ask her if we could not recall an event, a name or a timeline.
Her recall and memory gradually but steadily declined. Our love grew stronger and more protective. Our interactions changed, and our bonds deepened.
One day my Mom asked me," Lisa, do you think they can fix this thing?"
Yes, Mom, they will, I said.
My Mom passed away in March. We the children, grandchildren, Molly's kids, will walk for her, in her honor and memory to do our part in " fixing this thing"
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
