Thank you so much for introducing us to Ashli Montgomery and her crusade for the Alzheimer cause. I appreciate all the creative ways that she has found to contribute and to get others to contribute to help support those with Alzheimer’s and to those that are caring for someone with the disease. I will definitely check out both websites to see how I can get involved.
Thank you Shannon and Ashli. The timing of this topic couldn’t be more perfect. My mother passed away in March from dimensia. I visited with her in February and have very fond memories of her smile. Now that I know about Quilt 2 End ALZ. I have a new quilting project to focus on. Again, thank you.
