    This is really nice. Awareness and giving is always helpful.

    I’ve lost several close relatives to Alzheimer’s, or similarly related dementia type diseases.

    They were not all blood relatives, but heck, family all the same.

    It’s a train wreck situation, and when it happens to someone in your life, it’s heartbreaking.

    Sometimes, I really don’t want to see “purple” or “reminders” of this. But I love that there are efforts to support causes to prevention … or whatever these group charities are supporting.

    I know that I’ve never seen or received or felt the fruits of these labors, in my own experiences.

    I’ve just seen a flawed and failing medical institution (in my case), where the cause was never fully addressed … only the effect. And that’s when it was too late.
