Harriet is my mom, a beautiful and vibrant woman, afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease.
She is 82 years old and has had Alzheimer's for over 10 years
The possibility of getting Alzheimer's was one of her biggest fears in life.
She is in a wheelchair and can’t walk much.
She can’t feed herself.
She can’t dress herself
And when she speaks, most of the time it’s gibberish.
But, she is still Harriet, a beautiful and vibrant woman.
I am Walking to help eradicate this disease which steals the future of the afflicted and those who love them and take care of them.
I would appreciate it if you'd visit my page and support me in this journey.
And it goes without saying that everyone reading this has a loved one or knows someone with this heart-breaking disease!
Help me do my part to support people affected by Alzheimer’s & dementia and their caregivers!
I am participating in the CaringKind Alzheimer’s Walk for the over 5 million Americans that have Alzheimer’s and am raising awareness and funds for programs, services, support, and care for all New Yorkers.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s will increase significantly over the next two decades. Alzheimer’s disease is not backing down, and neither am I! I am determined to make an impact on Alzheimer’s and I need your support to do my part! By making a donation, you are helping CaringKind, The Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving to provide free information, assistance and support for those with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, as well as for their family members, caregivers and professionals.
Thank you for helping me in my efforts for the CaringKind Alzheimer’s Walk!
