My mother, Genevieve LaBier had Alzheimer's disease from her early 70's until she died in 2002. In 2005 so many people would tell me that they had a loved one with Alzheimer's that I decided I had to do something.  Being a runner and owning our own business I thought this would be relatively easy to start a 5K road race in memory of my mom. My first call was to the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association in Watertown, MA. I told them what I wanted to do and they sent me a race director’s packet. Somehow I managed to get everything in place

I am 71, and I have a strong family history, on my Father's side of Alzheimer's.  Beginning with his father, then his sister, his brother and finally himself.  His sister's son, my first cousin, (he was some older than me), was affected too and died two months ago.

And so I grew to know this disease as a child and young girl.  I remember how it upset dad to visit his sister, who had progressed.  It devasted him and he would cry and cry. Then, even though he was the oldest, his younger brother came down with it next and suddenly too.

When my dad was hospitalized back in Late 2011 for what would be the last time before he died, the doctors thought that maybe it was possible that he had been slowly developing Alzheimer's or dementia or a little bit of both. I myself am not really sure, however just a few months before he died, was when I started taking a interest in this disease and the group. Even though, there might be times when my dad might not be able to remember what happen 5 minutes ago, he could at times vividly remember things that happen 50 yeaers earlier or from his childhood.
