Participated in my final Board of Directors meeting for the Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter this afternoon. It has been a wonderful experience to help this organization raise Awareness, Fund the programs and support for families with this disease, and of course fund research so that we can someday see a World Without Alzheimer’s Disease.
The fight for this disease continues and I will hopefully be involved in the future, because having personal experience with Caring for my wife Chris, and seeing it’s impact on her side of the family is devastating. Through the process I have gained a great deal of compassion and understanding of living with a long and terminal illness and the affects it has on everyone involved.
If you are affected or know anyone who is, please have them contact there local Alzheimer’s Association Chapter, and get involved with a support group or get information at www.alz.org
