"My mom was my everything. And then suddenly, I had to be hers."

Kathryn quit her job to care for her mother, Patricia, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the heartbreakingly young age of 55.

Her instincts told her that she needed to be there for her mom. But it was far from easy. Kathryn described Alzheimer's as an emotional rollercoaster that no one can deal with alone.

That's why your gift today is so urgently needed. 

When you support the Alzheimer Society with an online gift right now, you support the programs, services and research that give hope to so many families like Kathryn's. 

Please be a lifeline for people with Alzheimer's and their loved ones.

"People with Alzheimer's and those that care for them urgently need your help. It's our lifeline. It's how we make it through each day. And it means so much more than you'll ever know." - Kathryn
