2020 has been a challenging year so far! Despite these tough times, I'm inspired by those around me who have been working hard to help our community impacted by dementia. Especially my colleagues at the Alzheimer Society of Calgary and Dementia Network Calgary! What an incredible group of individuals!
Earlier this year, our family lost someone very dear to us, to dementia. I'll be ever grateful to the support team here at the Society for the help they gave to me and my family during those last, difficult months, weeks and days.
It'll give me an extra push this year, to make sure I do everything I can to help other people living with a diagnosis and caregivers who need support and information.
On Thanksgiving Sunday I'll be walking with my family to raise funds and awareness. It'll be strange this year, not being able to get together as we normally do. Nevertheless, I know we'll all be together in spirit.
