The Longest Day

Hello everyone. Today is June 21, 2018, the longest day..summer’s begin…Alzheimer’s battle cry. Today’s nationwide, charities and indviduals are feverishly pounding pavement, pressing keys, taking pictures, and doing whatever they can to bring awareness to Alzheimer’s disease. If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you may have seen our annual Memory Walks, and my honoring my great grandmother who developed and lost her battle to the disease. That woman raised me from three weeks old. I hated watching her diminish. I hated watching her not know me. I hated the fear in her eyes when she realized what was happening…and when she didn’t.

All day long, I’ve been posting and tweeting. I created a donation box at my office. I have talked about it to my colleagues. I’m praying for a cure. I can’t wait until we get there!
