WORLD ALZHEIMER’S DAY “STIGMA-BUSTER”: MY MOTHER!

September is World Alzheimer’s Month™, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma. My contribution is to post daily, for the month of September, the amazing words of my mother, Jo, spoken and recorded in the midst of her Alzheimer’s experience.   EXCERPTS:  “The Long Hello.” (Arcade NYC – April 2016.)
