Erica and Family

Longtime Volunteer from San Jose Shares Her Story

Erica Perez-Chavez is a stay-at-home mother of three from San Jose. She was raised by her great grandparents Maria and Manuel. Erica was six months pregnant when she lost her great grandmother to Alzheimer’s in 2004. She knew nothing about the disease other than the fact that it took the only mother she’d ever known.
