Me, My Dad & Maria Shriver

2003: My dad was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s.

2005: I started a fundraiser benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association.

2008: My dad died from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 68.

September 21, 2011: Today is World Alzheimer’s Day. I wrote an article for MariaShriver.com about how my fundraiser began… and she posted it. Then she tweeted it to nearly a million followers. Wow.

My dad would be so proud.
