I was still very young when I first decided to pursue a career in medicine. My early experiences helped me grasp the importance of what I might accomplish if I could succeed at practicing medicine with compassion. I can still recall, at the age of nine, with sleepy eyes, taking my post for the night. It was my turn to sleep on the floor at the door to Great Grams’ room and to sound the alarm if she should try to escape.

My Mom Jean has Alzheimer's Disease 14 years. Mom lived with me for many years misdiagnosed. She was 58. Alzheimer's never crossed my mind or the Drs. This disease knows no boundaries including age. We were all ignorant. In 2005 after an ER visit and 19 horrid days in a psych ward   Mom was diagnosed and was told she had less than 3 years to live. Mom insisted on placement in a Nursing home. Me and my sister were furious but had no choice but to respect her wishes. I guess mom knew she was sicker than we did and she was protecting us. Always a mom <3.

Hello my name is Jacque,

I am 19 years old, & I want to share my story about my best friend G.G. A.K.A. Gang-sta Granny, or LeWanda.  

My Grandmother was so instrumental in my life, she taught me the importance of reading at the young age of 4. She would tell the story of many books, she taught me how to use phonic form of reading, she was my biggest fan, as I would have her sit and watch me roll play Being my favorite (at that time) Brittany Spears, we took long, long walks, She helped raise me as my mother was a singel parent.
