Help Raise Alzheimer's National Awareness

January 26, 2015

The newly formed WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s Network has dedicated itself to raising national awareness for Alzheimer's. The disease which affects one in eight people over age 65, does not have a unifying national campaign.

The WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s Network hopes to change that with its new "Shadowbox Memory Project". 

The Project featured leader's pictures and mementos honoring their loved ones affected by Alzheimer's disease in a display of "shadow boxes" at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in D.C. 

The WomenAgainstAlzheimer's Network hopes to expand the Shadowbox Memory Project in the future, similar to the Aids quilt.  

Please tell them what you think about their idea and provide valuable input with this quick 2 minute survey:

Here is a one of the moving shadowboxes:

The writer Loretta Woodward Veney made this touching shadowbox in honor of her Mother, Doris Perritt Woodward, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
