Dan Wheldon Wins Indy 500 for Alzheimer's Assn.

Dan Wheldon wins the Indianapolis 500 today, advocating for those with Alzheimer's Disease as his Mother has the disease.  He was not in the lead until the very end of the race when the lead car ran into a wall after taking a turn wide.

Dan's win brings nice publicity to the goals of the Alzheimer's Association to educate and support those with this form of memory loss.

Understanding the types of memory loss and the ways to provide for care are important steps to take when caring for someone with Alzheimer's Disease, which touches everyone from former presidents to race car drivers.

    This is a heartwarming story of a son's love for his mother. I do feel terrible for the driver of the lead car, however. Hope he wasn't hurt!
