"I"~ "A-Z CHALLENGE"


"I"

I already shared what I had hoped to share for the letter "I"
Interactive Tour
not realizing 
it was the
Brain
Tour

so

I thought of two other
"I"
words

INDIVIDUAL

and

INTERNATIONAL

not sure which one would be best as regards
ALZHEIMER'S


Indeed Alzheimer's is an International concern

but

what I think is most important is that each

INDIVIDUAL

matters

and

their case is different

to be respected and treated well

completely

This started me thinking about famous individuals and ordinary individuals that have been affected by Alzheimer's disease and their individual families. Their individual testimonies all matter.

How many Individuals do you know
that struggle(d) with
ALZHEIMER'S

and

how many famous
INDIVIDUALS
have you heard about?


"Glenn Campbell (1936 – ); Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004); Charles Bronson (1921 – 2003); Perry Como (1912 – 2001); Rita Hayworth (1918 – 1987); Sugar Ray Robinson (1921 – 1989); Aaron Copeland (1900 – 1990); Peter Falk (1927 – 2011); James Stewart (1908 – 1997); Eddie Albert (1906 – 2005)
E.B. White (1899 – 1985); Rosa Parks (1913 – 2005); James Doohan (1920 – 2005); Malcolm Young (1953 – ); Norman Rockwell (1894 – 1978) B.Smith

I recently learned through a friend online "Abby" that a dear Christian singer
Ben Speers was also diagnosed with Alzheimer's

Do you know 
INDIVIDUALS
with Alzheimer's?

"50 Celebrities ..."

"Celebrities who have been touched by Alzheimer's"

EVERY INDIVIDUAL
Matters

not just celebrities
but at least
they help get the attention for research and donations

I didn't know about some of those people! I do remember Ronald Reagan, and I remember Nancy characterizing her journey with her beloved Ronnie's illness as the "long goodbye." I think that sums it up perfectly...

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
