My Personal Family for a Cure Fundraising Page
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I'm taking on the enormous physical challenge and personal adventure of cycling across South Carolina. I've also committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Now is the time to come together to change the course of this disease!
My own mother died from Alzheimer's disease, and many of you realize how heartbreaking this is for all concerned. Alzheimer's is far more than a memory problem. It robbed her of her ability to recognize me and others. It prevented her from enjoying travel, fine dining, and socializing. The disease slowly eroded aspects of her personality. Alzheimer's disease is not just a problem for the immediate family, or the extended family. It has far reaching ramifications for society.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and its work to enhance care and support programs and advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease! Your support means the world to me on this memorable journey!
