ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE
November 30, 2012

I was inspired to quilt by a dear friend. That friend developed Alzheimers and lost her ability to quilt. After 9 years she has now lost her battle with the disease as well. Her husband was a wonderful caretaker but this disease is devasting. The Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative is the perfect way from me to honor my friend's memory and support research so others do not have to suffer the way my friends did. All of the people associated with AAQI have been wonderful to work with. Ami Simms is an inspiration.

ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE
February 2, 2011

One of my dear friends who is a quilter has Alzheimer's. It has been so sad to see her lose the ability to quilt as the disease progresses. So, I quilt to honor her and to honor all the caregivers who experience the lost of a loved one in this insideous way. AAQI is an incredible organization, let by the incomporable Ami Simms and a great team. If their enthusiasm alone could find a cure for Alzheimer's, we would have it.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen the AAQI exhibits and been moved by the stories of quilters touched by Alzheimers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change the organization at all. I want them to get millions of dollars so they can keep doing good work and find a cure.
