Many of you know I was serving on the Nor Cal/Nor Nevada Alzheimer’s Association Board of Directors. Sadly my term came to an end. There were several others who were terming off as well. They did a great job of thanking us! They had cake, champagne and gave each of us wonderful gifts. What a great night. I actually cried when they thanked me for my service. It’s hard to say goodbye sometimes, but thankfully I will still see many of them going forward.

Bob and I spent Sunday in San Francisco at Maria Shriver’s event, ‘Move For Minds’. This was the second year we attended and it was sold out! The event took place at the Equinox Sports Club and following the workout there was a fabulous panel. I also had the opportunity to speak again this year, and to remind everyone ‘what Alzheimer’s looks like’. I cried a little and so did many others, but that’s normal for me when I talk about the personal side of this disease.

The workout was specifically created to focus on your mind and your body. It was hard and I was sweating and breathing hard but I didn’t stop! One of the research assistants from UCSF who we have become friendly with attended as well. It was so great to have her there. She is an amazing young woman and I can’t wait to see where her life takes her after she graduates from medical school. Bob and I always look forward to seeing her during my infusions and cognitive testing for the Roche/Genentech clinical trial.
I’m ok with flying alone and with navigation SFO, but I don’t want to take any chances of having a panic attack when I’m by myself. I really appreciate all the accommodations the Alzheimer’s Association provides for those of us living with this disease. They make it so easy to ask for help.
So that’s what’s new with us. I have another busy weekend coming up and Bob is busy too. We have a strong balance between work and fun and do a good job of not overcommitting. We certainly make a great team and he does a fabulous job of making sure I am happy and well cared for💜 Lucky me!
Thanks as always for your love, prayers and support 🙏 They really mean a lot to me.
