“Before my mom, Rosalia Dattolo, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, she enjoyed cooking, knitting, gardening, and spending time with her family. She and my dad loved a full house filled with their kids, grandkids, extended family, and friends. I feel they made every day a celebration of life. She was diagnosed in 2012 with Alzheimer’s disease. I love my mom more than words can ever express. Watching her struggle with Alzheimer's disease has encouraged me to make every effort in finding a cure. Remember Me, Inc was established in honor of my mom. But the fight is for all those who have this debilitating disease and for those we have lost to it.”
“My Nonna sailed across the Atlantic to come to the United States and begin a new life. She had to learn a new language, hold a job, and have immense bravery. She was 19 years old. For years, lived with my grandparents meaning that I was fortunate enough to be raised by two generations of women who are brave, loving, and driven.
Now my Nonna suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.
First, she cleaned the coffee pot three times, then she forgot my birthday until eventually, she forgot my name. But the thing about my mother is that the special woman I call Nonna taught her to not let things simply happen. The women in my family do not give in; we don't merely accept the fate that's been dealt to us.
We mold it; shape it into something worthwhile.
Therefore, in honoring my Nonna and all those who have had their precious memories taken away from them, we started this non-profit organization in the hopes of a better tomorrow for families going through the same heartbreaking struggles.”
