The JC Gives.

hayley-mom-end-alz

You’re about to read a heartfelt speech given by JC member Hayley Jones at our one year anniversary celebration. For those of you who know Hayley, you’ll certainly agree she’s all heart with a voice to backup all her strength. As an early adopter of the Columbus Junior Committee, it’s people like her that keep us motivated. Her story is an emotional one and we’re honored to share it with you today.

To me, the JC means my family and millions of others can have a better future. As most of you know, PCA [Posterior Cortical Atrophy, a dementia related to Alzheimer's disease] took my mom on November 20, 2013.

Alzheimer’s only takes. It took her vision, her freedom, and ultimately her life.

Along with the patients loss, the caregivers lose. In my situation PCA took our mom, it took my dads wife and best friend, it took my nieces Gram. On top of taking everything from the patient, it takes the caregivers, too. My dad lost himself so much that he landed in the hospital with blood sugar of over 600 in October 2012 followed by a heart attack. It took so much of him to care for his wife; he couldn’t take care of himself.

The JC GIVES.

The JC gives us as place to grieve. It gives us people to rely on during our darkest days. The JC brings joy to the residents of first community every month. The JC raises money to fund research to give a better life to an Alzheimer’s patient. The JC and the Alzheimer’s Association give caregivers the support they need.

ALZ does nothing but take. I’m part of the JC to GIVE.
