It’s almost that time again. Only three days left to contribute to the Walk.The Alzheimer Society Walk for Memories. My sister has conscripted me into the family team this year, she’s calling it For Pete’s Sake, just click the link if you want to donate even a tiny amount to a great cause.
My father, Peter de Haas (who was a well-known Toronto photographer) turns 80 this year. He was first diagnosed with Alzheimer disease in 1998 and it has slowly but surely robbed him of every single memory he owned. Now he doesn’t even recognise my mother, his wife. It breaks my heart.
