Our story . . .
Two sisters. Two battles. Two caregivers. Two different diseases. One at the beginning of life . . . the other at the end of life. So very different you would think . . . Autism and Alzheimer's. Are they so different though? Kristine and Toni don't think so. Dealing with these neurologica diseases on a daily basis Krisine and Toni see many similarities in these diseases. Maybe you will to?
This site was developed to bring those that we love and those that love us closer as we do our part to share our lives in hopes to bring awareness and knowledge to light about these diseases. In doing so we hope to inspire others to fight whatever battle they may be facing with love, strength, and courage. Everyone has a batle to fight. Whether it is a disease like Autism or Alzheimer's, another disease, family issues, finacial troubles, job crisis, hunger, abuse, addictions, or any number of other problems or a combination of them, EVERYONE has a battle to fight.
Kristine knew something wasn't right when her son, who had been developing normally, wouldn't use words or eye contact any longer. Marley was progressing and growing like any child might and then suddently, one day it was as if switch was turned off and his light was gone. This occured not long after a session of immunizations. Something was different, something was very wrong. Marley as diagnosed with regressive autism. That was over 18 years ago, he is now a young adult. Kristine has done and tried everything possible. Medications, therapies, diets, stem cell injections, acupuncture, supplements and seen numerous and vaired doctors, and will continue to do so. She fought to get education where it needed to be through starting FEAT along with other parens in Clark county. She will continue to bring awareness about not just autism, but regressive autism.
Family members and friends started to notice signs of dementia in Yvonne in 2007. That is when Toni started taking her to the doctors. After being told that her mother didn't have dementia and that she was fine, just depressed, well that was Toni's ticket back to denial for over a year. However, problems only got worse and Toni eventually snapped out of denial and started seeking a true diagnosis. Yvonne was diagnosed in March of 2009 with Alzheimer's Disease. Toni, along with the support and love of her husband and four children, is dedicated to caring for Yvonne for the rest of her days on this earth. Toni also feels very strongly about raising awareness and educating others about this disease.
