ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE
June 1, 2010
I have been involved with AAQI since 2006. My mom died with Alzheimer's mid-2005 after a multi-year descent. It broke my heart when she no longer knew my name ...
During her illness and years of decline, my sister and I felt so powerless. We did everything we could to keep Mom safe and comfortable, but the relentless progression of the disease stole her away.
Now, I stitch in her honor and memory to help AAQI raise desperately needed research funds.
No one makes an Alzheimer's journey alone - as Mother Theresa put it: “We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” This is SO true of AAQI - together, one quilt at a time, we ARE making a difference.
I am grateful and honored to be a part of AAQI.
