End of Year Appeal
Message from a young volunteer

Dear Friend,

Alzheimer's disease is widely believed by
many, including my contemporaries in the 20s
and 30s, to be a disease which only affects
the elderly. My mother Mary Trela, a woman
who represents the purist example of what a
mother ought to symbolize, was diagnosed in
2007 at the age of 57, while I was still in

It's important to me to share the story of my
and her courageous battle with Alzheimer's.
