The "Longest" Day Alzheimer's Awareness Month....





"Go Purple" and Pledge to Help Fight Alzheimer's Disease! June is the awareness month for this horrible disease...


Such a critical health issue, that effects so many around the globe. My Grandfather suffered from this tragic disease, and my Grandmother had dementia, which seemed like the beginnings of Alzheimer's also. It was terrible and sad to watch how much this truly changed my Grandfather. Every once in a while, you could see the glimmer in his eyes that he knew myself and my 2 kids. My daughter was only about 2 years old at the time, would crawl up and sit in his lap and put her arms around him! You could tell he knew who she was, and in the next moment, he maybe frightened that "men" were watching through the windows, or rats were coming through the floor... it is a horribly bad situation, that many live with for years and years, both the patient and the family members.
