BEATLES LYRIC PILLOW {BENEFITING ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION}

$ 50.00

Hula-la! This looks perfect for you!

"You may not know this because it has been an internal debate for some time on feeling like if we made known Mom's struggle with Alzheimer's Disease public that people may think we were using it to sell product. But if you've ever asked me about the name tattooed on my wrist or what the necklace around my neck reads, you have a good idea.

When I had my first encounter with the wonderful people working at Alzheimer's association, I quickly realized that the disease is so poorly understood that telling Mom's story, OUR story, would help others learn, relate and hopefully, above all, provide comfort to some in similar circumstances.

In 2014 our family began to notice changes in my mother. The once, social butterfly, pulled herself away from her friends, stopped driving, broke social engagements but continued to love fiercely from her home. Her speech rapidly got away from her, letting us finish her sentences until she mostly communicated only by pointing and noises. Her dexterity waned, eating only with her hands, losing her ability to walk on her own and then not at all. We cared for her in her home until the day she passed, June 12th, 2019.

Our relationship with Alzheimer's & Aphasia (diagnosed with both types of dementia) is a complicated one. While it robbed us of the most important woman in our family's life it also brought us opportunity. After all, The Admiral's Daughters started out of the concept of having a flexible job for me, so that I could work from home and help the DADmiral care for Mom. The growth of our company has allowed us to be positive players in our community and use our reach to do exactly what we are doing here — educating and fundraising."

~Lindsay {Co-Founder, sewer of pillows}

Thank you for considering purchasing from our charity shop. Although we are always in the practice of giving back financially, $10 from the purchase of these pillows will be donated to Alzheimer's association so that we may one day, shed light on this dark disease.

Mom gave the most incredible hugs. These pillows are meant to be a tribute to those embraces as they are made from Mom's old shirts. The fun loving seamstress loved COLOR, mostly turquoise &  blues (ever wonder why our company is branded with these colors?) and she loved the Beatles. A lot of Lindsay's childhood memories are making tiny pillows in the sewing room while singing along to the radio with her Mom. We have chosen two sets of lyrics to adorn the pillows that we feel represent her well. Our hope is that when you hug this pillow, no matter what your relation to Alzheimer's or our family/company, you find comfort.
