I was diagnosed with Younger Onset Alzheimer’s two years ago. The diagnosis was devastating but instead of hiding and being silent, I chose to share my story with the world by blogging and speaking at events, raising money & advocating for research funds. I am currently a member of the Alzheimer’s Assoc National Board of Directors & just finished my term on the Nor Cal/Nor Nevada Board. I am a past Early Stage Advisor for the association as well & have spoken at many Alzheimer’s walks, events & at the National Advocacy Forum in DC. I am currently part of the Roche/Genentech clinical trial and spend every waking moment sharing my story and trying to remove the stigma of this disease.

This is so well deserved. Pam has done everything in her power to help find a cure and end the stigma of Alzheimers. She travels and speaks out about her story at multiple functions and works hard at spreading the word. She has a powerful voice and is making a huge difference. — Denise
She is such an inspiration as a women on a crusade to educate others about early onset Alzheimers by sharing her own personal story. And just in general Pam is an amazing person with a heart of gold! — Annette
