My dad used to love to watch me swim. On September 27th I will be swimming from Alcatraz to shore in the hopes of raising money in my dad's honor. My dad suffered for years with early onset Dementia. Dementia took his life, and changed my life forever. The Alheimer's Association is an amazing organization which funds Dementia and Alzheimer's research. My dream is that one day- we will have the knowledge and medical advances to truly prevent, cure, and erradicate this horrible disease. This is my way of making a difference- my dad would be so happy (and proud).
