Every year, we (Young People Against Alzheimer's - YPAA) look forward to this moment and to this announcement, sometimes with knots in our stomachs. Will we reach our goal? Will we be able to make a difference? After an exceptionally successful two years, raising $21,000 in our first year and $35,000 in our second year, we gave ourselves the lofty goal of $45,000 in our third year so that our overall three-year total would be $100,000. We asked ourselves if we could do it. Well, not only have you helped us achieve our goal but you have helped us exceed it. By $20,000. That's right, we've raised SIXTY-FIVE-THOUSAND dollars for the Alzheimer Society of Toronto (AST) and we couldn't be more grateful and humbled by that number or excited at the possibilities of what those funds will do for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their families.

My mum was one of my best friends. Every morning she would walk into my room, wake me up and I would sit on her lap as she brushed my hair. Then at night, she would read me a story or we would chat about our days, and on many occasions she would fall asleep right next to me in my bed. Jane and I shared one of the most precious bonds of my childhood; we were so similar, which is why we got along so well. When I was in grade nine, we got the life changing news. She was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. At that time we all knew the end result as my grandfather passed alway peacefully, just two years prior. We lived in denial for a couple years, hoping it was menopause that was getting the best of her, but she knew deep down that wasn’t it. I spent that entire summer with her up at my cottage, she was extremely depressed, and there was nothing I could do. Looking back I wish I put my selfish adolescence ways behind me and talked to her more during the time that she was still lucid.
