JUNE IS ALZHEIMER'S AWARENESS AND BRAIN AWARENESS MONTH
During the month of June, the Alzheimer's Association asks people around the world to take the Purple Pledge, #GOPURPLE, and use their brains to fight Alzheimer's disease!
|We have to help Grandma a lot now, because she has Alzheimer's|
** Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States
|Grandma doesn't remember a lot of things and people anymore, but she remembers ME and she loves when I come to visit her!|
** Alzheimer's is the only cause of death in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, slowed, or cured
|My Mom, just a few short years ago at the very beginning of her Alzheimer's diagnosis. She is still Mom and we all love her.|
|I love to visit Grandma. I give her kisses, comfort her, and make sure she knows she is loved.|

I know it's "wordless" Wednesday and I've been too wordy already, but I hope you won't mind if I take the opportunity to thank MY MUTT RILEY here. We are so honored that our Husky, Icy has received the Pooch of the Month award from MY MUTT RILEY, Life With A Miniature Schnauzer! Icy was chosen for this month's award because they were impressed that she is a therapy dog that does many things to help our community including: children's reading programs, visiting the elderly, and participating in Stress Buster events for college students during exam weeks. They know that Icy loves everyone (including cats!!) and think it is a great skill. A giant THANK YOU to MY MUTT RILEY!!
