Several years ago my husband's grandfather passed away. However, in the years prior he started to decline with what was later diagnosed as dementia/Alzheimer's. This is a terrible disease.
Ami Simms, who is Founder and Executive Director of The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is trying to change things by raising money for Alzheimer's research. Please check out her site, AAQI, to learn different ways to help.
To date, the Initiative has raised $735,000 but so much more needs to be done.
