A few days ago, I was doing some online networking, blogging, creating business materials, etc. and got an invitation to join in with a friend for Walk to End Alzheimer's. I've been asked before, but either did not have the time or it just didn't seem important. Well, shame on me! It is important and I must confess, I'm ashamed of myself for neglecting this issue because my great Aunt who recently passed away had Alzheimer's disease.
Since "retiring" from my day job I vowed to myself to act upon those things that are important, those things I either have neglected to make important or honestly did not have the time for.
In the past, I have done other fundraisers through my Origami Owl business. Now, I turn my attention to Alzheimer's disease. You see, my great aunt had Alzheimer's. At the same time, she had lung cancer. The family debated whether or not to treat her cancer because of the Alzheimer's. She did not understand what was going on around her. Did not know why she was being taken to doctors, did not know why people were poking needles in her arms or why she was throwing up.
I guess it was a blessing that she went fairly quickly. In fact, she passed from this earth with my mother by her side. I believe God spared her from a long painful existence that many Alzheimer's patients and their families endure. From the time the cancer was diagnosed to her last breath on earth, only approximately two years went by. It doesn't really matter which disease ended her life, the fact is, disease took this wonderful woman from us. Here is your chance to find a cure for one of them.
