Everything I do is in honor of him. Working to tell his story, honor his memories, and do everything in my power to spread awareness about Alzheimer's disease.
Even though he's still here, I miss him.
I love you, dad.
"My experience with Alzheimer's has inspired me to become an advocate and to help raise awareness of the disease. From the support groups I've attended to the conversations I've had with other caregivers, I've been able to learn more about the struggles and triumphs that come with being a caregiver. I believe it's important to share our stories and to provide support to each other so that no one has to go through this journey alone. I hope that by talking about Alzheimer's, I can help to reduce the stigma associated with it and make sure that people affected by the disease are provided the care and respect they deserve."
