Why I Walk – by Jeanne Pope

“It is hard to write this blog entry.  Alzheimer’s Disease has affected so many people in my life. Two of the most important women in my life were my mother and my mother-in-law.  I watched as these two loving and vibrant women had their lives shattered by Alzheimer’s.

As a caregiver, I know the hardships and the blessings that come with spending the last of my mother-in-law’s life with her. Wyatt and I wanted to give this gift of care to her. Needless to say, we want to see a cure for this terrible thief of the vibrancy, of the personality, of the relationships we had with our mothers.

Please join us for the Tallahassee Walk to End Alzheimer’s on October 14, 2017. We appreciate any and all support you can give to this great cause.”
