Hi, I’m Betsy
I founded For Their Thoughts Foundation (FTTF) because my mom was diagnosed with “Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) at 56. There isn’t a day that I don’t think about my Mom and the 6 years she fought her battle. She was a mother of 5 children, a nurse, a wife of 30 years, and a passionate, loving woman. In just 6 quick years, dementia slowly took away everything that made her my Mother. Losing her ability to talk, walk, express emotion.. along with reading, writing, and eventually even swallowing. It was a painfully slow process that happened so quickly.
What happened to my mother, also changed me.
I miss her. The REAL her.
I’ve started this foundation in her honor and I will move for her thoughts. I will create awareness for those going through the same motions and I will continue to make a change for the next generation. So I am here to ask you.. Who is your WHO? Will you walk a mile for them, for yourself, for all those struggling with the same weight, to create change?
We are here to define dementia and we”ll do it together.
