BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2011
The family and friends of Jean LaFond are uniting to raise money to help with cover medical costs. Please show your support! Any size helps
My mother Jean LaFond was diagnoised with Dementia/Alzheimers in 2001. She was able to live independently until 2005. Since 2005, my mother has lived with my family and I. I have cared for her for past six years with little help financially.
Before she was diagnosed, my mother was very active and outgoing. She has been a wonderful mother and grandmother to a large family. She enjoyed going to church, bingo and social meetings. My mother was a very hard worker and worked for Steger Furniture and Steger Piano for many years In Steger Illinois.
My mother is currently in Hospice care and her care needs are growing more extensive. Because my mother can no longer stay home alone or care for herself, I have been unemployed for several years. However, my years of unemployment have caught up with my family. We are asking for help to cover unpaid bills so my mother can live out her final days in comfort surrounded by her family. I am also attempting to raise money to buils a wheelchair ramp and patio so my mother can enjoy the outdoors. She has not been outside in about a year.
