Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s Out of the Shadows Summit held in Washington, DC. While there were many memorable moments over those two days, one of the highlights was our evening at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. That night, the WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s (WA2) Network launched its Shadow Box Memory Project.
Prior to the Summit, attendees were invited to create shadow boxes containing pictures and memorabilia honoring loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Each shadow box was as unique and beautiful as the person that inspired it. Seeing the display was a powerful, moving reminder of why we are determined to keep fighting until we stop Alzheimer’s in its tracks.
Now WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s wants to know what you think about expanding this project, creating a national campaign to raise awareness about the disease – much like the AIDS Quilt did for AIDS. Did you know the quilt boasts an impressive 48,000 panels and a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize??!
As we prepare to mark the beginning of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, please take 2-3 minutes to respond to this brief survey. Your feedback is very valuable to WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s, and your time and opinions are truly appreciated.

Thank you so much and feel free to share this with others who have been touched by Alzheimer’s. Together we can and will make a difference!
I took the survey and shared your Memory Box blog. These are beautiful! Thanks, Ann.
