If you've been listening to KEX or K103 for the past few years, you've heard my family's story. I lost my mom to Alzheimer's Disease in Nov. 2011 after more than 15 years of cognitive and physical decline. And if you've had a loved one go through this mess, you know how terrible it is to watch a mind crumble and not be able to help, to comfort or ease the anxiety associated with it.
Team Heaton has been walking to end Alzheimer's for six years now. You're welcome to join our team or start one of your own! You can show up and walk or, if you're not available to head to PIR on Sunday, Sept. 8, you can contribute to this worthy cause. We're raising funds to support research on the causes and cures and also to help the people with the disease, their caretakers, friends and family with a variety of important services and resources.
THIS IS HOW WE DO! Team Heaton 2011!
