Welcome to my Walk page. I am continuing to walk and raise money in honor of my grandma, Donna. This is my #1, top priority to CONTINUE on my bucket list, to walk for Donna. I walked for the 1st time in 2017 and did the 3 mile walk. I walked in 2018 and faced heat exhaustion in 90+ degree heat! This year I am also helping to plan the Walk by being on the Logistics Committee and volunteering for the Street Team along with my husband Alan. Both the 2017 & 2018 walks were phenomenal experiences. Both were emotional and moving but I was also PROUD! I was proud of myself for taking on this huge challenge and I was proud to walk in grandma's honor. This year I am hoping it will be the BEST most fulfilling year yet!
My grandma played a huge role in raising me and helping me become the person I am today. She gave me unconditional love and was always there for me. She was also there for my boys, Alek and Derek. We had a VERY special bond grandma and I. Donna was so special and words cannot describe the LOVE I have for her or the emptiness I feel inside at her passing. What I wouldn't give for just one more hug from her but, I can't have one more hug, because Alzheimer's took her away from me!!! and from my boys!
Please help me continue to honor one of the most important people in my life.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R). Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's and Thank You for helping me honor Donna.
