Hi! Our dad -- the Big D -- was the freakin' greatest... He was an incredible dad and such a generous, vibrant human. He truly, deeply cared about people. His family, friends, colleagues, students... everyone. He was always there for you when you needed him, always ready with a hug, a bad joke and a really long story.
He died just over 3 years ago but parts of him started fading a lot longer ago. Alzheimer's is a horrible, wretched disease, making people forget things that you never want to forget. Names, stories, contexts, connections... your life and yourself little bits at a time, over and over again.
So, in honour of our dad, we're raising money so that the Alzheimer's society can continue to help, and to reach more families who need it through such a heartbreaking time in their lives.
By donating to me or our team, you are helping to transform the lives of individuals and families living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
