Hey Friends! My full-time gig is having an event in the month of August called, Heal the World! There are 4 teams competing to raise money for the charities of our choice. My team is trying to raise $ for Alzheimer’s of North Carolina! If you have ever lost a loved one or currently are seeing someone you love battle the sadness that is Alzheimer’s or Dementia then my heart goes out to you. I have seen two members of my family impacted by it and also know some others very close to my life that are currently adjusting to life with this disease.
The best way I can describe it is – you lose someone twice in a sense. Your heart breaks as you see them lose precious parts of themselves. You see them forget not only who you are but, how to do things like make a sandwich and put on their clothes. You listen to them as they ask you the same question over and over again and I think our hearts slowly accept it more and more each time how very broken they feel.
Sadly, you see them obviously distraught over their inability to process what’s happening in their minds. Then at some point they’ll lose their battle to this illness and you lose them physically. It’s just a heart-breaking disease. I would see my Grandaddy and he thought I was my Mama when she was much younger. I saw this break her heart and that in itself also broke mine.
This is why we’ve chosen to raise money for this cause and I hope you will support us!
I am pumped at the raffle items we have! Below you will find a link to our Facebook Event page as well as individual links to each Business who has been so generous with our raffle items.
