I am the face of Alzheimer’s. I am the daughter and niece to eight family members lost to Alzheimer’s. I teach at an elementary school in Muskogee Oklahoma and it has been my mission since my father’s diagnosis in 2006 to educate our students about Alzheimer’s and provide resources to families serving as caregivers or affected by Alzheimer’s. I have helped establish a semi-professional, annual hockey game to raise funds and awareness for the disease and I participate in the yearly Walks to End Alzheimer’s. I will not stop fighting this disease until or unless it stops me.
