Life Isn't Always Fair

My Mother: a woman who faught so incredibly hard to overcome heart disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, gall bladder removal, and so many other ailments along the way.

Against ALL of the odds, against every doctors prognosis, my mother faught so incredibly hard and succeeded to live long enough to see her daughters graduate middle school, to graduate high school, to graduate college, marry the loves of their lives, and to see the births of 4 of her grandchildren.

Why on earth would she later be diagnosed with dementia, the disease that will eventually ROB her of all the memories she faught so hard to live to see? WHY?
I ask myself this question daily and it absolutely breaks my heart.
