ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE
February 19, 2011

When my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2002, I found myself suddenly in charge of her life. As the disease progressed, we placed her in an Alzheimer's facility, which turned out to be one of the best things we could have EVER done for her!
As a quilter, one of the speakers at our quilt guild meeting talked about the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, so I made a quilt and donated it - it was such a warm feeling. Since then, I have donated numerous quilts, one of which was accepted into the Heartbreak to Hope traveling exhibit. I have gotten others to make quilts to donate also and continue to do so. This organization proves that although we are not researchers, we can still be part of the solution. It is such a feeling of accomplishment that you truly ARE helping eliminate this horrible disease!!! Quilts helped bring the slaves from the South to the North, so it is only fitting that quilts can help bring this disease to an end!!! Thank you Ami for starting such a FABULOUS FABULOUS cause!!!!
