WAGS Love Wright State of Mind

WAGS Love Wright State of Mind

Happy May! I'm excited to announce our LOVE partner for this month, Wright State of Mind. I first heard about this organization from Madison Wright when she was a guest on our podcast

The mission of Wright State of Mind is to love and care for those affected by dementia, and it all began when Madison's mother-in-law Sherry was diagnosed with Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Dementia at the young age of 51.

Around the time of her diagnosis, our mother began experiencing difficulty following the game. Now, she does not even recognize when Mike is on the field and often cheers at inappropriate times.

We have cared for our mother over the past three years, and we have watched her face additional challenges each passing week. It is heartbreaking to watch a loved one, who was once so independent, grow to require help with a task as simple as using a fork to eat. In the midst of all the trials, we do our best to love her through it and to enjoy the precious moments we share together, even if not with the mama we’ve always known.

In honor of our CARING mother, Sherry, we decided to use her story and our trials for the good of others. It is her inspiration that has driven us to establish the Wright State of Mind nonprofit organization. There is a huge need for dementia research used to develop potential treatment options and to discover a CURE for such a devastating disease. There is also a huge need for resources for those affected by dementia, as well as their caregivers. We believe that Wright State of Mind can help see to it that these needs are met.
