Help Fight Alzheimer's! Get this Donation Pack!

This Friday is THE LONGEST DAY. . . .it's summer solstice & it's also the day the Alzheimer's Association has set this day aside to honor those living with Alzheimer's (that's my mom!) and their caregivers (that's me!). It's a day meant to support Alzheimer's Awareness.

From the website:  "The event is about patience, strength and endurance – but it’s also about a challenge. On The Longest Day, do something you love – or try something new – to advance the cause! For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, this challenge is every day." The challenge is to gather a team, choose something to do from sunrise to sunset and raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

My family has chosen to BOWL from sunrise-to-sunset because bowling was/is one of my mom's favorite things to do. As a matter of fact, she calls the Day Adult Care that she goes to every day the "Bowling Alley" (I haven't figured out why, exactly, but I'm hoping it's because she enjoys going there and associates that
feeling with the old days at the real bowling alley!). We also thought it was perfect because there are so many ways to bowl: at a traditional bowling alley, at home on your wii, outside with a lawn bowling game....heck! you can even pull out the kids' toy bowling set and enjoy a game!!

Alzheimer's is such a terrible, ugly disease. There is no cure, and it's so much more than loss of memory. Did you know that Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death? That's right. Alzheimer's is fatal. And it seems that this horrible disease has touched almost everyone. That's why it's so important to work together to fight against Alzheimer's and work toward finding a cure. I hope that you will help!
