Give the gift of support
Their memories may fade, but love remains.
Caron wanted to share her story with you:
"When the doctor first told my Mom, “You have Alzheimer’s disease,” I was numb. There I was, only 30 years old, with a newborn son and a mother whose memory was starting to fade. I Googled as much as I could about the disease, but panic came the second I saw the words: There is no cure.
"All the while, Mom was weeping. She kept asking over and over: “Who has this Alzheimer’s disease?” “Who has this Alzheimer’s disease?” “Who has this Alzheimer’s disease?
"If you or someone you love has Alzheimer’s or dementia, I don’t have to tell you how unpredictable it is. Or how heart-wrenching it is to watch a friend or family member slowly being stripped of their identity…experiencing the loss of every memory they once cherished so dearly.
"As hard as this is to talk about, I agreed to share my story with you because I want to see a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias."
Give a very special gift this holiday season.
Your gift to the Alzheimer Society will help women and men in our community who face this devastating disease by providing support to programs and services.
Thank you for your support!
