My father Doug, his twin, Uncle Don and his younger sister Aunt Joan are all living with Alzheimer’s. Their older brother, Uncle Paul, also suffered from the disease before he passed and now his wife, Aunt Gladys who was his caregiver for many years, suffers from the disease. It is heartbreaking and so difficult to watch them all slip away as the disease progresses ESPECIALLY with no cure in sight.
Two years ago, I decided to learn more about the disease and what services were available for my family members and found the Alzheimer’s Association. At that time, I knew I had to get involved and support this organinzation which not only provides support to all thoses affected by Alzheimer's, but also advances research in hopes of eliminating the disease and promotes brain health to help reduce the risk of dementia!! Enter....the fabulous Wine, Women & Shoes event organized by the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter. As a long-time event professional, I volunteered on the WWS Planning Committeee last year and am thrilled to be involved again this year!! I am working on both the Auction and Fashion committees.
I do it for the my Dad, Doug, my Uncles Don & Paul and my Aunts Joan & Gladys!!! I do it for the caregivers, my mom Betsy, my Aunt Kathy and my Uncle Bob! I do it for me, my siblings and all my cousins! I do it so one day....there is a world without Alzheimer's!!!!
