Pull Your Purple Out!  

You have a little over a day to pull out something purple so you can show your support for World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21st.   It’s up to us to break the silence and extend our hands in support of this chronic illness and all who are dealing with it.  Get ready to chat it up and spread the word about Alzheimer’s disease.   If you are able, donate to the cause.  Show your support by volunteering or contribute financially to one of the many organizations and foundations.    

Everyone needs compassion.  Don’t let a of lack of expression or response determine ones ability to connect.   

All it takes is a mil-a-second and things can change.
