BENEFITING: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
My family has a history of Alzheimer's so for me this is a fight that we need to win for the benefit of my family, my children and their children. Religious beliefs aside, we are our mind. To see the gradual stripping of our personalities of who we are means you truly lose the person before they are gone. I have seen this disease rip my grandfather from my family. As a grandfather he was kind and caring. He was one of my best friends and we lost him too early.
As you can tell this is a personal battle for me just as other diseases and causes become personal battles for others.
Asking for a donation to help this cause helps me honor the lives of those that came before me and provides funds to hopefully help find a cure so that our children can grow-up in a world with different uncertainties from the world we have grown up in.
Your donation or just your thoughts and prayers to someone in need are welcomed.
