Welcome to The Unforgettable Fund - one family's effort to shine light on a very dark disease.
Alzheimer's creeps into the minds of our loved ones and breaks the hearts of their families and friends. I was lucky. When my father was diagnosed, my six brothers and sisters helped to carry the tremendous weight of this disease. For eleven years, we traveled through some very tough terrain. Our father died on January 3, 2006 and in his memory, we created The Unforgettable Fund - www.theunforgettablefund.com - to support Alzheimer's research by remembering loved ones. We launch on Monday, May 15. This blog is a component of that effort.
To all of you who feel alone in the middle of this struggle, we're here to tell you that you're not. We can help by sharing what we know and what we still have to learn. This is the place we'll do it.
