Ironic.

Today’s Daily Post Word is Mnemonic, which is something used to aid in remembering. Ironically, I am a huge supporter of the Alzheimer’s fundraising efforts because EVERYONE DESERVES TO REMEMBER.

Alzheimer’s is a disease which takes away all memories until the body literally forgets how to function and it stops and dies. I cannot possibly imagine a worse way to do, although it is often a peaceful ending as the sufferer just goes to sleep when they forget to breathe.

So, to aid in the research to find a way to stop this disease that has a 100% mortality rate, I am raising funds for the research. You see, this disease has a very personal story to me. Six years ago I met the woman who is now my wife. Her father had been diagnosed with the disease for a few years at that time and now we have been told that it has progressed to a point where he won’t live to see summer which is less than 6 months away. His body is forgetting how to operate.

But you can help!
