Great Customers - Operating Engineers Funds Inc.

Sometimes customers surprise me...

They see the "tag line" of my email (Support the Fight against Alzheimer's disease!, see also this post) and decide to help.

A few days ago, I received this:

A big Thank You to the Operating Engineers Funds Inc. for their donation!

> Thank you for making me more aware of this disorder.

I wonder.... Is that what is lacking? Awareness? I used to ignore Alzheimer's, even make fun of it. If this was an illness affecting young people, I bet research would get all the funds it needs.

Just for a minute, try to imagine it is your mother who is the patient... After that search google for the Alzheimer support group in your country and make a small donation.
