The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.

I’m going the distance with the Alzheimer’s Association ALZ Stars®, a program to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Association. I am running the 2018 Chicago Marathon in her memory.

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.

My mother Patricia Lindh passed from Early Onset Alzheimers at the age of 62 in 2009. In retrospect I can see when the symptoms began to present. It was early in 2003. We were talking on the phone and she told me the weirdest thing happened to her, she had forgotten how to tie her shoes. At this point in her life she was a busy business woman managing a reinsurance office in Philadelphia and my step father worked in reinsurance in NY City. During the next 6 years we watched her health and mental capacity decline. The person who had it the hardest was John, my step father. I watched him leave his career and move them to Colorado to be closer with my grandmother, mom's mom. This is where she finally passed, on the western slopes of the rockies where her and John would hike and fish. 

In the following years I have made it a mission to help people prepare for thier golden years, the unexpected medical isuues, and end of life preparations, financial legacies and asset protection. If you are reading this and have questions about ALZ and/or any issues that come with it, email or call me. I can help you either directly or put you in contact with someone who can.

I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research to discover methods of prevention, treatment and ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.

Thank you in advance for your generosity – together, we can outrace Alzheimer’s disease.

I prefer to mail my donation.
