I lost my mom to Alzheimer's in 2007. She was always a very active and healthy woman and it was such a shock to find out she had Alzheimer's. She watched two of her brothers go through Alzheimer's and pass away so she knew what was to come for her. It was such a sad time to go through. It's so hard to watch the vibrant mom slowly diappear before your eyes and not be able to do anything to stop it. We need to find a cure for this horrible disease.  Millions of lives will be saved. I only wish there was a cure for my mom.

For a couple of years I had been trying to get my husband's doctor to listen to me and tell me why George was lethargic and losing interest in socializing with friends and family. All he wanted to do was lie on the couch and watch TV. I would rub his feet and ankles and knees for hours on end.

I was an intern during my work for my Social Work major in college at Sunlight Senior Center in Northridge, C.A. We worked with many seniors with Alzheimers and other forms of dymentia. It was one of the best jobs that I've ever had, the seniors loved us and we loved the seniors. Unfortunately, the center was closed due to funding and the family members had to find other arriangements for the seniors who could not be left at home alone.
