Kathy's Story
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


I lost my daddy to Alzheimer’s about three years ago. Now my mom has it. It hurts to know that she will go through the same things he did.

I wish I could find a cure for Alzheimer’s; not only does this disease hurt the person, it also affects the family. I cry a lot and pray a lot. It brings back all the memories of my daddy. I keep all the families and their loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s disease in my prayers.
