Alzheimer’s has and continues to play a big role in my life. My father is currently in mid-stage and my grandmother, his mother, passed away from related causes. For that reason and because we’re Latino, the chances of my siblings and I being diagnosed with the disease someday are higher (read info here), so I’ve decided to fight the good fight as best I can.Along with trying to keep myself healthy, mentally and otherwise, I want to raise money for research, something I’ve wanted to do for a few years.
This is the year.
My life is more organized and I’m on time to form the team, Forget Me Not, for the September 9, Walk to End Alzheimer’s- Chicago.
