Alzheimer's Memory Walk

When I was in college, we would usually hang out at our friend's house after school. We all belonged to the same class. I can say she had the nicest grandmother in the world. She was the sweetest she could be. Whenever we would come to just chill out, she would make it a point to cook us our favorite snacks, and entertain us with stories about her younger years, her love life, how she met her husband, how many boyfriends she had, etc. We always enjoyed her company and there was never a dull moment with her. Years passed by after graduating, I met my friend at a store surprisingly and asked about her grandmother. I was shocked about what she revealed. She said she had changed a lot and had been forgetting things like their names, and even forgetting to turn the stove off at times. Even her moods have changed. Sometimes, she's relaxed, then after a minute, she'd be crying, and then get mad at everybody for no apparent reason at all. I figured she had Alzheimer's Disease as confirmed also by my friend. I feel sad for her and her grandmother. That being said, I would like to invite everyone to join the
Alzheimer's Memory Walk. By joining this event, you would be able to raise awareness and funds to the care and research of Alzheimer's Disease which has been affecting a number of elderly people. Young and old, no matter what your age is, you can be a volunteer to Alzheimer's Memory Walk. There would be walks in more than 600 communities. The Memory Walk is a 2 to 3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall. It is the nation's biggest event so far that aim to put a stop to this disease.

Please join. Help. Who knows? This might save your loved one's life, and even your life.
