PENDLETON, Ore. — Dani Moore knows how Alzheimer’s disease can rip into a family. The 18-year-old has watched her grandmother slowly fade away for more than a decade. Dorothy Bjorklund hasn’t fully recognized family members for several years. Dorothy is one of 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease. Moore, a recent Pendleton High School graduate, wrote about how Alzheimer’s disease affected her family in a national scholarship essay competition sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
