Amanda Logan is an on-air personality at popular Toronto radio station Z103.5. On Saturday, March 28th, Amanda is the master of ceremonies for the sold out 4th ever Memory Ball which takes place at Palais Royale. Here, she tells us about her history with Alzheimer's.  I’m so honoured to be hosting the Memory Ball 2015. Here’s a bit about myself and my relationship with Alzheimer’s Disease. Like many, it was affected me and my family directly. When I was younger, my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease. I grew up around it. My parents sat me down as a little girl, and explained to me why grandma couldn’t remember many things. Yes, there were tough and confusing times, but what always made me feel special was that I was the one person she always remembered in a hospital room full of aunts, cousins and uncles. She passed away 18 years ago this month and I carry her spirit with me all the time.

by: Claire Poirier  Mind Over Matter.  It’s a phrase we have all heard countless times. Personally, my mother, Jane used to advise me with this saying, whether I would be complaining about going to the dentist, or, in a letter during my first year at overnight camp where I was terribly homesick. If you think back to any challenge you have faced, mind over matter has brought you to where you are now.  Mind over matter means the ability to use your mind's willpower to overcome an obstacle.mindoveralzherimers
