Challenge

May 2, 2013 - Lisa Hirsch

With another Mother’s Day approaching I can only feel blessed that my mom is still alive and still able to know who I am. For me each day begins with phoning her, because I am a long distance caregiver. Just yesterday I asked if she wanted to speak with me. Her sweet reply was, of course she wants to speak to me, “ for I am her daughter and she loves me.”  As she shared her words and sentiments with me, it brought such warmth to my heart and filled my eyes with tears.

About

WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s Network

The WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s Network (WA2) is the powerful, united voice of women who bear the major burden of the Alzheimer’s crisis. We arm women with the information and easy-to-use connections needed to be heard in Washington, in state capitals, and to communicate with industry leaders and the research community. Our goal is to facilitate a network of women who inspire and learn from each other and to steer the energy of women towards advocacy efforts that advance our national commitment to ending Alzheimer’s.
