Undiminishedbydementia.com is my personal website that I set up to encourage honest conversation between those of us who are or have been affected in some way by Dementia. I urge everyone to share their stories, joys, tears, difficulties and triumphs! Today there are close to 50 million people worldwide who have some form of dementia, and that number grows by over 7 million each year. The picture above is of my mom and myself shortly befor her diagnosis. Mom was courageous in her fight, and displayed an unyielding spirit that was determined to be heard-right up to the end! Her grit and determination have inspired me to write and encourage others who are undertaking the same journey!
