A Facebook friend, Susan E. Newman went live with Maria’s speech after being introduced by Harry Johns, of the Alzheimer’s Association. Maria was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.
She seems very dedicated to staying the course and making sure a cure is found. Her dad had Alzheimer’s disease. She recognized the fact that 66% of those afflicted with alzheimer’s and caregivers are women.
She has founded the Woman’s Alzheimer’s Movement and here is a link to the website. http://thewomensalzheimersmovement.org/moveforminds-2/
