My grandmother fought her entire life for the American Dream. She came through Ellis Island as an immigrant from Greece without speaking a word of English. Alzheimer's will not be how her American Dream ends. This disease needs to be taken seriously. It's time to raise our voices for those who can't.
How do we try to be an important part of our grandchildren's lives and leave a lasting impression, when they are so busy coupled with long distance relationships? My grandchildren live in Arizona, Texas, Indiana, California and Chicago. I live six months in California and six months in Chicago. It's hard to be a grandmother of consequence!
