The Edwards family has been hit hard with this terrible disease. My maternal grandfather had it. My mother had it. Two of her sisters had or have it.
It is a scary feeling seeing your loved ones suffer and not knowing if it will affect you. My mother has one sister who is suffering now with this disease. It is a very hard job being a caregiver, because it affects everything in your life.
My family is committed to the walk in four states to help raise awareness. We are committed to the walks in Baltimore, Washington D.C., North Carolina and White Plains. This is in part for us to find a cure.
