“I became involved with the Alzheimer’s Association when my mom was diagnosed in 2006 and she moved into my home. My sister and I joined a local support group, and through that, we became familiar with the Association and the resources it provided. I was a member of the local board for six years, and served as Board Chair for one of those. I’ve had a Walk team every year since 2007, and have been the top fundraiser in the Fort Bend Walk to End Alzheimer’s every year since then! I involved both of my children in the Walk when they were in high school, and they served as Youth Chair for our local Walk for three years. This year I’ll be putting another Walk team together to raise awareness and funds for research and local care/support for victims and their caregivers.”
