Join host Tami Neumann as she speaks with Kristine Korpal founder and organizer of a bike event to support the Alzheimers Association. Kristine will share with ...us her journey through Alzheimers wit...h her father Karl T. David. Karl was diagnosed with Alzheimers disease when he was only 61 and lived with the disease for 10 years. As his caregiver Kristine learned how to be creative and inventive with his care. Before passing away he told Kristine that she could help to educate others about Alzheimers disease. This led Kristine to organize a bike event to raise funds for Alzheimers disease which is now in its 9th year. To learn more about Kristine and her event please click here.
