Mary Stemann remembers when she knew something was different with her husband Robert…She started winning arguments! In time he got more and more confused. They went to their family doctor and were told that nothing was wrong. This happened more than once. By the summer of 2015, he was having seizures and had become more and more withdrawn. A visit to a neurologist confirmed Alzheimer’s disease. Robert died in 2017, his last months spent in a memory care facility. In looking back, Mary wishes she and her husband had known about the Alzheimer’s Association and their services. She walks so those families and people with Alzheimer’s can realize that they are not alone and information and support are available. She walks in memory of her husband Robert and to raise awareness for these services and to find a cure.
