Today struck a very real chord with me, when it came to Alzheimer’s rocking my world.
At the Memphis Walk To End Alzheimer’s,
the incredible Brittany Murray chaired the event and shared some of her story about her mom’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Her mother was diagnosed at 52, and has been battling Alzheimer’s disease for four years now.
I’ve followed Brittany and her incredibly resilient family on social media, and have always been so touched by how much they care for their mother and fight daily for a cure and consistently make sure she has the best quality of life and caregiving possible
This is the incredible servants heart is something that I see in my mom every day.
She felt Brittany’s pain,
being a child of someone with Alzheimer’s and being her fathers primary caregiver during the time when he battled Alzheimer’s disease.
From my perspective, I felt Brittany’s pain and purpose as she spoke on being her mothers caregiver.
Brittany’s mom and my mom are right around the same age,
and my heart shattered for her as I realized how lucky I am to have a healthy mom unaffected by dementia, and what an incredible daughter Brittany is to be so much for her own mother.
