I have spent 58 months of my life raising awareness concerning alzheimers disease. I have often wondered why others were not more aware. Alzheimer’s took my dad’s life and 6 of his brothers and sisters. My mom is 88 years old and does not have diabetes, but she lost several brothers and sisters to it. The arrival of Noah’s March has changed me. Before they got here, I knew almost nothing about diabetes. I know more now and for the first time in my life, I am somewhat aware of what mom’s family suffered through.
I’m no different than the people I wondered about.
