World Alzheimer's Day

From Ami Simms' blog: "This Sunday, September 21, 2008, is World Alzheimer’s Day. It is a day to remember the 26.6 million people worldwide who have this vile disease that will eventually rob them of the ability to remember and to reason. It will take from them every skill they ever learned and every relationship they ever held dear. And for most, they will watch this thief at work in their own minds."
The virtual patch I've added here is to honor my mother, Jean Tompkins Mahon, who is rapidly slipping from sight and reach.
Please visit Ami's site, www.AlzQuilts.org There you'll find instructions to make your own virtual patch and learn about ways to help fight this pernicious disease.
