LOCAL BUSINESS HELPS BRING AWARENESS OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Local Business owner, Ryan Benoit has teamed up with his friend Pat Roy to design a t-shirt that will help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias in hopes of helping families cope through difficult times. The funds raised from the sales of the t-shirts will be donated to the Alzheimer Society Sudbury-Manitoulin North Bay & Districts to assist other families who are living the dementia journey.

“The biggest reason for creating this t-shirt is to bring awareness to an awful disease that has affected my family. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 4 years ago and this has been extremely hard on my mom and our family as a whole, as this disease has become more and more challenging as time progresses. This year at the very young age of 58, we had to move my mother into a long term care home” says Pat Roy, care partner f or his mother. “ Positive Inception is a brand created by the wonderful Ryan Benoit to find a way to bring the positive in everything and out of everyone. Therefore, we put this t-shirt on our backs to fight this disease by staying positive, find happiness in each day and continue to smile in hopes of helping others”.

Ryan Benoit, owner of Positive Inception, is known for being a gracious community oriented individual who aims to help and support wherever he can. The t-shirts are now being sold in his store located at 12 12 Lasalle Blvd, Sudbury ON as well as online atwww.thepositiveinceptionstore.com. Funds from the sale of the t-shirts will be donated to the Alzheimer Society Sudbury-Manitoulin North Bay & Districts to help support local families who are living the dementia journey.
