Welcome to Talia's Personal Page
On September 30, 2018, I will be hiking the Grouse Grind in support of the Alzheimer Society of BC. My grandma has dementia which has progressed very quickly. There are 3 main types of dementia: Alzheimer's, Vascular dementia and Lewy Body Dementia. My grandma has Lewy Body Dementia, the second most common type, after Alzheimers. The North Vancouver branch of the Alzheimers Society of BC has really helped our family to understand and manage this disease and provide us with guidance to find the best care and support to my grandma as possible.
With your generosity, we can make a difference to estimated 70,000 British Columbians who are currently affected by Alzheimer disease or other dementias. We need funds for more research and programs to help support families like ours as there is no cure for this disease.
Join me in ending the stigma of Alzheimer’s disease. This isn't just about our grandparents or parents, I want to raise awareness for all ages!
Thank you again and please join me (and my dad who will be hiking with me : ) at the Summit Celebration to cheer us on as we complete our journey! Let's kick dementia 's butt!!
