My mom who has ALZHEIMER'S has become my hero. She touches my heart each and every day, as I am also her caregiver.
Mom not only is my hero she continues to inspire me after 13 years of having this disease. It was not always like this, yet today, I am so fortunate to have an unconditional love for her.
“This is such an intimate, personal way to really remember someone that was important to you,” said Lou-Ellen Barkan, president and chief executive officer of the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, who has dedicated her own chair to her father, Joseph Greenberg, who passed away with Alzheimer's in 2001.
