Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Salwa Megally. I was born and raised in Egypt. After I got married, I lived in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. I moved to Macon, Georgia in 1999. My husband passed away six months after we arrived in the United States due to cancer.
I struggled, but, with the support of family and friends, I managed to get through the unexpected loss of my husband. I obtained a Master's degree in business, and owned and managed a retail store in Macon, Bella Donna. Currently, I am a Community Relations Manager with Homestead Hospice and Palliative Care.
My children are my heart, and I am extremely proud of them. My daughter, Nada, is following in her physician father‘s footsteps as an OB/GYN resident. My son, Nader, is a Client Account Manager for OxBlue Corporation in Atlanta, Georgia. Our fur babies, Bella and Nyla, are a big part of our lives. Bella is a certified therapy dog, and she puts smiles on patients’ faces.
I love capturing moments with my camera, and I love dancing. I can walk like an Egyptian, and I dance like nobody is watching me!
Losing family members due to Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia is heartbreaking. I can’t express how sad I felt seeing my aunt deteriorate due to Alzheimer’s disease and eventually pass away. I will always remember my brother in law’s sadness as he watched his mother slowly fade away. Through my work, I have daily encounters with patients with Alzheimer’s dementia. I witness firsthand how gradually this disease makes strangers out of loved ones.
It is with great honor that I am dancing to help raise funds for research that will provide a cure in addition to care and support for families that are dealing with Alzheimer’s. I am calling on all my family and friends here and abroad to support me and this cause, so perhaps our future generations will remember Alzheimer’s as a thing of the past.
