alzheimers news-post walk thoughts

these walks are what keeps the alzheimers engine going

these funds raised
provides education about this terrible disease
provides an opportunity for families to come together
to share their experiences with this disease
provides a chance for family and friends to support those
friends that have been affected by this disease
help fund research no matter how small to reach
all our final goals
a treatment
a cure
a way to prevent
alzheimers disease

we all there had the same goal
some of us more affected than others

this is the group that walked with us on saturday
our team

it was made up of friends and former patients
folks from both my wife shes and my lives
supporting us as we march forward looking
to reach our goal of a cure or treatment

even these two were there
wearing shirts from our first walk several years ago
they werent even born yet
but they have these shirts on
walking for the cause
both parents were former patients

there were folks there from
habitat for humanity
meals on wheels
my former clinic
former patients
my wifes shes friends and former teacher friends

it felt good to be with them
knowing we had this type of emotional support
and financial support
for the future

later many of us got together for lunch at a
nearby restaurant
to continue our celebration
a celebration of life

this walk was different
it felt different
i knew as did they that this one would be our last one
here in central texas

i feel good
that i somehow have left a mark in this area
hopefully advancing awareness for the fight against this disease
that folks will remember for a long time

to all who supported us here
emotionally and financially
as we move forward against this disease

you will not ever be forgotten
