ST. LOUIS, Mo. _ The Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place on September 16 in downtown St. Louis. Ken and Mary Shapiro joined us on FOX 2 News in the Morning to discuss the event and make potato pancakes!
Ken's mom, Lee `Popie` Shapiro, first published her cookbook 'After I`m Gone: Recipes for the Hereafter' in 1993, she wanted to preserve family recipes and stories. She was Jewish, so there are lots of Jewish recipes!
The book is also full of stories and anecdotes.
When 'Popie' became diagnosed with Alzheimer`s, the family became involved with the Alzheimer`s Association. Ken is now selling the book in honor of his mother with proceeds going to Ken`s Walk team, benefitting the Alzheimer`s Association.
