The Rotary Club of Issaquah has selected the Swedish Cancer Institute/Issaquah as the primary beneficiary of their 36th annual 5/10K run/walk event.

The best way to head off memory loss and to figure out if that is in fact what you’re experiencing is to talk with your doctor and discuss your concerns.
