Last Saturday I participated in my third Walk to End Alzheimer’s in honor of my mother Angela.  Seeing someone you love slip away, wether a parent, grandparent or friend is devastating.  You have a choice as to how you handle your grief.   I choose to walk and bring social awareness to this disease.  Did you know that there are more than 5 million Americans with Alzheimer’s and 2/3 of those suffering from Alzheimers are women?   In addition in 2015 over 15 million caregivers provided an estimated 18.1 BILLION hours of unpaid care.  Even if my mother never sees a cure for this disease I know she would be proud of the efforts made by all those who donated in honor of her, and future generations.

So I want to send a HUGE Thank You to those who supported my walk.  From the generosity of family, friends, co-workers and even strangers I was proudly able to walk as not only as a Champion but as a Grand Champion by raising over $1,000.  Blessings to all of you! Please keep my mom, our family and all those affected by Alzheimer’s in your prayers.  Keep the faith and walk on!

Special thanks to InknBurn and The Treadmill for their donations and support!!
