Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Abilene

Alzheimer's is something I take personally, both my grandmother and my granddad had the disease. My great aunts suffered with it and it's not pretty. It takes away the 'person' you loved, strips their memory away and leaves but a shell of the person that once was so full of life. Through research though we may hopefully, one day, can find a cure.

With a mom holding the boy by the hand, the child screaming and trying his best to wiggle away to freedom. We’ve all witnessed this situation, right?
