A Very Important Sunday

Dear Magic friends,

In December 2000, my father lost his battle with Alzheimer’s disease. The day he passed away was a sad one for our entire family, but I also remember the years preceding it. I witnessed the slow deterioration of a once vibrant, brilliant and witty man. To watch him slip away was devastating. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that can take away one’s quality of life. I saw firsthand how it affected Dad and the toll it took on my mother, his primary caregiver.

That’s why I will be taking part in the Greater Boston Memory Walk On Sunday, September 26th at Canal Park in Cambridge, across from CambridgeSide Galleria, and I would love you to join me and walk with my team! Just go to http://memorywalk2010.kintera.org/manh/magicmovers to be a Magic Mover

Or make a donation at http://memorywalk2010.kintera.org/manh/nancyquill to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.

Walk with me at memory walk or make a donation today. Together we'll be taking steps to end Alzheimer's.

 
 

 

Sincerely,

Nancy Quill
