Welcome to My Personal Page
Please join me in the fight to end this devastating disease. It has affected my life in unimaginable ways...beginning with my adored grandfather, James - my cousin Mary - my beloved dad, who had vascular dementia - and my precious mom, Peggy who died in 2012 after a 15 year journey with Alzheimer's
If it hasn't touched your life be thankful. If it has, be strong!!
Did you know?
- it is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed.
- it is NOT just a "normal part of aging" - please find a health care provider who is educated in this area!!! GRRRR!!!
- deaths from other major diseases (including heart disease, stroke, breast and prostate cancer, and HIV/AIDS) have decreased while deaths from Alzheimer's have INCREASED.
I'm helping reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
Thank you for joining the movement!
