“Without that love and support we received from readers our situation would have evolved into heartbreak; instead, we experienced joy.”
Paula Spencer Scott has written an article in Parade Magazine highlighting many of the wonderful people who are making a difference in the Alzheimer's community.
Paula did ask me an interesting question during the interview that did not make it into the Parade article.
Paula asked, What keeps you going with the website now that you're mom is gone, why still you do it?
In the weeks after my mother's death I received more than 2,100 emails thanking me and asking me to continue my efforts.
The Alzheimer's Reading Room lives on to honor my mother, and to thank the many thousands who supported us in the most difficult of times.
The amount of love and support we received from the readers kept us going. Without that love and support our situation would have evolved into heartbreak; instead, we both experienced Joy.
The ARR is not a profit making entity it is an effort to benefit society, and more specifically, to benefit the Alzheimer's community worldwide.
