BOSTON, MA — Patricia True of East Kingston will participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Northeastern Massachusetts Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sun., September 15 at Andover Landing at Brickstone Square in Andover. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
On December 2, 2000, True lost her mother, Marjorie Osborn, to Alzheimer’s. Losing her mother was the hardest thing True’s family ever endured.
“There is no worse feeling than having someone you love not know who you are,” said True. “I miss my mom every day, but the Walk gives you an awesome feeling because you are with people who know exactly what you’ve gone through.”
“We are grateful to our Walk participants, they are raising the level of awareness in the community and their fundraising dollars fuel our mission,” shared Ryan Vigue, Director of Development at the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter. “People of all ages and abilities that join the Walk find it to be an inspiring and empowering experience. Together, we are working towards our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.”
