IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s moves online! CLICK for more information.
Welcome to Team BarboPapa!
Team BarboPapa will be participating in our 6th annual Walk for Alzheimer's on Saturday June 6, 2020 in support of all Dementia related diseases. As you know, this initiative is very near and dear to our hearts as our own dad suffered from this horrid disease and took him from us in July 2018. We were grateful for every day we had with him, but it was always with mixed emotion. It would make our hearts smile to see his eyes light up at the sight of his granddaughters on some days and hear his infectuous laugh. But it would also break our hearts knowing he was stuggling to remember who we are on those other days. And on the worst of those days, near the end, well, there just are no words to describe what that was like for our family.
Dementia related diseases are horrible, as they rob you of your mind, your memories, your independence, your dignity, amongst many other things. But people like our beloved Papa still mattered - as do thousands of other Canadians living with this disease! And raising awareness is the least we can do in honour of my dad and many other patients.
The Alzheimer Society Peel was a great resource for our family in regards to support, counseling, and care, as they provide essential programs and services that work to effectively alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias within our community.
By supporting Team BarboPapa, you are helping the Alzheimer Society to continue its important work towards a world without Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Alzheimer's does not discriminate, it affects everyone. There is no cure, and there are no survivors. All we have is hope. Help us make that hope a reality some day.
Thank you again for your kind and generous support.
XO The Barbos (Carminda, Jenn, Nicole, Maya, Riley, Parker and Matt)
