2011 Walk to End Alzheimer’s Kickoff!

We were pleased to enjoy such an inspiring luncheon with those who really make this annual walk such a success! Thanks to Cindy Lowery and Amy French from the local association!

One of the great things about the Alzheimer’s Association is the chance to hear the stories of such great people. This is a family with whom Gail had a wonderful conversation. The family’s matriarch, Betty Tate, cared for her husband after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. She recalled going from a large world living with a man who served his country in the military and operated a large cattle ranch to the very small world of the Alzheimer’s mind. It was beautiful to see how supportive her family was in her efforts to support the Alzheimer’s Association in his memory.
