Don and Lynda were Caregiver's for multiple members of their respective families... and their individual Caregiver Journey's crossed path with the writing of a book. Now, several years later they are some of the leading advocates working tirelessly to StampOutAlzheimer's and I am so happy they shared their story with us in this episode.
CLARIFICATION: All proceeds from sales of the semipostal stamp go directly to the the Department of Health and Human Services, the federal agency that funds Alzheimer’s research, and are designated for research at the National Institutes of Health.
The proceeds from Seasons of Caring, Dementia-Friendly Worship, and Stolen Memories go directly to #UsAgainstAlzheimer’s to advance the work of the Faith United Against Alzheimer’s Coalition.
No funds go to “Help Stamp OUT Alzheimer’s.”
Thank YOU for Caring!Read More
