THE STORY:

Hi my name is Kathy the name of my team is angels left behind and that is exactly what I will be doing if we don't find a cure. I was diagnosed with early on set Alzheimer's at the age of 49 it was in 2008 I have never been so scared in my life. It all started after having a simple hysterectomy in 2003 it was to be routine but wasn't I went in march and woke up in April I was in icu for 19 day's and on life support. I cleaned out the blood bank and had a hematoma the size of a basketball in my belly. I worked for a Dr. at that time before surgery and after never worked again I am know on disability due to the all the damage done. One day I was at home and had a strange feeling not the usual forgetting but strange I felt as if my children came over I wasn't going to recognize them so I talked to my Dr. and was referred to a neurologist I had a MRI done and they had just passed a law where you could have blood work done for the testing of Alz. and this test would not be considered a preexisting diagnosis so I had it done a few weeks later I went in for the results. My neurologist Amy Tees said my MRI was great no tumors no growths and I was never prepared for what happened next. She then said but your testing for Alz. gene came back as 99.4% positive. My whole world was forever changed. My whole life is all about making memories they think maybe during the time when my brain wasn't functioning and being on life support it caused the Alz. to surface sonner rather than my later years. My father had some dementia before passing at 83 I did have 2 aunts that did pass from full blown Alz. so you see it is hereditary and know myself . I have 21 reasons to find a cure my grandchildren and 3 children Please dig deep in your hearts and in yout pockets and be as generous when giving i can't do this without your help as i want to see my babies grow up and know who they are please donate to my cause Thank You. Kathy
