Alzheimers Awareness Club Spreading Holiday Cheer!

I am the Secretary of the Azheimers Awareness Club at Monte Vista High School. Tonight Alissa Anderegg(President), Jane Nho(Vice President), Stephanie Glover, Daniel Glover, and I went Christmas carolling at Sunrise Assisted Living in Danville, Ca. spreading holiday cheer to the elderly! They were so appreciative and it put a smile on each of their faces which felt so rewarding. : )

      IT GIRL: Alissa Anderegg
My best friend Alissa Anderegg who is President of Monte Vista's Alzheimers Awareness Club is a strong advocate for Alzheimers. Two weeks ago, Alissa was featured on the home page of AOL sharing her story about her experience with Alzheimers! Last month, she sang at a LifeLine for Pets benefit concert, and her story about teens and Alzheimer's was published in the Shriver Report book. She also had the remarkable oppurtunity to speak at The Women's Conference among the most powerful women in the world including Maria Shriver, Oprah Winfrey, and First Lady Michelle Obama.  She also walks in honor of those with Alzheimer's at Alzheimer's Association Memory Walks throughout California. Join and visit Alissa's Facebook group Alz4Kidz & Alz4Teens:Resources for Kids about Alzheimers(link below).
