I work with people who have lost relatives to Alzheimer's. It is so sad for people to watch their parents/spouses/siblings succumb to this disease. My mother became demented in the months before she died. It was not Alzheimer's, but very difficult to deal with nonetheless. My husband's mother and grandmother also suffered from dementia before they passed.
I have enjoyed working on the Hartford Walk since it's inception, and look forward to many more in the future.
