My name is Madalena Esteves and I am the team captain of Maria Helena’s Angels for the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk 2010. We will be participating in the walk in New Haven at Lighthouse Point Park on Oct. 3. Our loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away on April 12, 2010 after living with Alzheimer’s Disease for over 10 years. We will be walking in memory of her. We still need donations and would greatly appreciate any donation anyone gives. All donations go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter. Thank you.
