Today’s Memory

Happy Earth Day!

Today marks the beginning of the 25th gathering of the Alzheimer’s Advocacy Forum in Washington D.C.  One thousand advocates are gathering to combine their voices to advance research to eliminate Alzheimer’s.  You can assist by contacting your Congressmen to support the HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act.

Now…on to a recent memory.  We had such an amazing time on our vacation to Florida in March.  What a beautiful area and our friends Bob and Mary were such wonderful hosts.  I had the pleasure to run in the neighborhood several mornings.  Training in Boca Raton is a little different than in McKinney.  You have to wait for drawbridges and take the sand out of your shoes!!

And finally….one of the most rewarding days was visiting Mary’s father, Stephen the day after he returned from a hospital visit.  These pictures exemplify why I run.  We need to raise awareness so that funding for research is available and that care givers have hope.  Please keep Bob, Mary and Stephen in your thoughts and prayers….

Happy 77th birthday to Glen Campbell who is in Washington D.C. for the Advocacy Forum.  Alzheimer’s has forced him to stop touring but we look forward to the release of his new album.

Make it a memorable day!
