Memory Walk 2007

My grandmother has alzheimer's.

Because of the familial nature of the disease, and my already shoddy memory, I worry about my future. I worry about my dad.

Because it has been shown to be linked to diabetes, I worry about SweetPea, who is pre-diabetic and has a strong family history of diabetes.

My dad, who had his hip replaced this past January, is participating in Memory Walk 2007 to raise money to help find a cure for alzheimer's and to help care for those with the disease.

If you can spare anything, please donate. Every little bit helps.

I'll be donating as much as I can, just as soon as I get paid.

I'm doing it for her. I'm doing it for him. And I'm doing it for me.
