The family of Katryna want to thank everyone that has supported the Alzheimer's funds.

My mother has Alzheimer's advanced stage disease. Up to now her Medicare and a state circuit prescription benefit covered most of her prescriptions. Effective 7/1/12, the state discontinued the program. This leaves me with prescription co-pays that would add up to $600 a month. My sister had quite her job to take care of my mother for the last 4 years. We will not have our mother put in a nursing home. We do not receive any additional help from any state or charities. I just want to have my mother with us as long as possible. Without her medications, her disease will progress much faster and we will loose her. My mother had always been the pilar of the family. She had a very hard life. I just want to be able to get the medications needed to have her around a little bit longer. I will be helping with some of the finances, but I cannot do it all by myself. I am a single parent with a Down's Syndrome son. I am assisting with food bills as well as supplies needed for the house.

I want to thank anyone reading this that can understand what I am going through in keeping my mother alive as long as possible.
