Isabelle fights for a cure!

Isabelle, touched by her Grandmother Lockwood having Alzheimer's, wanted to do something to help find a cure for this dreaded affliction.  So she took action to help her cope with the fact that her grandmother was slowly slipping away from her.  She got on line, bought rubber Alzheimer Awareness bracelets and sold them to everyone she met.  That set off a chain reaction at a Lion's Club meeting where her father had his outgoing president's gift of $500.00 allocated to Alzheimer's and he told Issy's story...a member stood up and said let's keep it going and they passed around a hat and got over $500 more in cash increasing the dollar amount to a whopping  $1,000+ donation!

In the photo above, Issy is with the director of the Alzheimer's Assoc. of GA when she presented them with her 

Isabelle made a difference.  I am proud of this granddaughter, for myself and for her grandmother, Marlene, for wanting to help and doing it!

Issy and her Mom will walk for Alzheimer's in the fall.

It all started with love and a bracelet.

What a wonderful thing for you to do to honor your grandmother, it must be very hard, but if Marlene could only tell you, she would be so proud of you Issy.
From your Great Grandmother.
