Strike a light with Alzheimer’s

Wendy Russ hosted a fundraising event in Victoria in February 2013 in honour of her mother Dorothy Jean Barnes.

Strike a Light with Alzheimer’s was held on behalf of my mother who endured a long journey with Alzheimer’s and dementia. It was a sad journey to see my mum go from a dignified lady, to one who couldn’t communicate in any form and lost control of all bodily functions. Over that time I matured in a new way and it opened my eyes to life.
