The month with the most light...
is the month we fight!
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light - the Summer solstice.
And it's marks the month that I have committed to help in the fight for a cure for Alzheimers and Dementia related diseases...actually...we are going to fight for the entire month of June!
Here at the shoppe we are participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
I watched as dementia took my mom to Heaven. It took 9 years. For my dad, my brother and I it was seemingly forever and yet, stunningly brief. It is a slow, silent, devastating killer.
We need to stop it.
We've learned more about the brain and neurological system in the most recent 20 years,
than in all the thousands of years prior...we need to keep learning, researching and continue funding to find a way to stop the devastation.
Today, it is estimated that more than 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementia including more than 6 million Americans.
In the US alone, more than 21 million family and friends are providing care
to someone they love.
We must find solutions now.
Now I realize this is a pretty serious beginning to my monthly intro...and if I made you uncomfortable or even if you stopped reading and scrolled by, please know I do this because it is important for me to honor the legacy of my mom by sharing this with with everyone I can. I would not wish this disease on any family.
That is why we fight.
So every dollar we make in June goes to our Longest Day team's fundraising efforts.
In June, everything we do we will do looking through purple tinted glasses...
With everyone's help...we can find answers.
If you want to directly join our efforts, please follow this link:
