June was Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month and I chose to go purple for my Grandmother Rosie Lee who succumbed to the horrible effects of the disease when i was 17. We hope for a cure for this horrible disease and it has been my personal mission to use my profession while I advocate for treatment through a good diet and exercise regimen.
I miss her so much. I remember how devastating the effects were on our family. She was the matriarch of our family and she left a void when she was no longer present.
