As my second year of being involved with BvB Dallas, the cause hits closer to home than ever. Last year I wanted to raise money for research and be involved in helping raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease. We raised over $440,000 and I personally raised about $1200. This was a great and positive way for me to be involved somehow and honor my grandmother who has been struggling with Alzheimer's for several years now. A few years ago we admitted my Grandma Dot, my favorite person in the whole world, into a "Memory Care Facility" in east Texas. On May 27, 2016, just two days before her 91st birthday, this dreadful disease took her life. I'm aware more now than ever at how difficult this disease is for the ones with Alzheimer's, their friends, family and caretakers.
More often than not, people don't know the steps to take to care for a loved one affected with the disease. But, after seeing the direct result of the money raised through BvB going DIRECTLY to the research departments and caretakers who are making leaps and bounds of discoveries for the people affected by Alzheimer's, I feel much better knowing that we could potentially be helping those affected in the future.
For Gma Dot, I decided to raise the stakes this year... My goal is $3,000 by August 13th!! ANY donation large or small helps tremendously and greatly appreciated!!!
