On March 7th, 2017 our family recieved the devastating confirmation diagnosis from Mayo clilnic that my mom has Early Onset Alzheimer's. We originially were given this diagnosis of dimentia in 2015, but as almost anyone who has been through this is in denial that it's actually happening in your family. As many of you know I'm a clone of my mother and this is some of the hardest news I/we have ever received. We have lots of time left but it's time we kick this disease where it hurts. This year she has started a trial to attempt to slow or stop the memory loss.
We also lost my beautiful, loving, Southern Belle, pink loving grandma to this horrible disease in 2013. Not a day goes by that i don't think of her and feel her watching over me.
This is my third year being a part of the Denver Blondes vs. Brunettes Flag Football Event. Last year the we raised over $160,000 WOW! And we are striving to hit even more this year and I'm excited to be a part of Team Blonde to reach that goal.
We have events leading up to the big Game on June 23rd that I will keep you updated with.
Our large Blondes Fund Raising event this year will be a Golf Tournament taking place June 7th at Arrowhead Golf Course. If you or your company would like to get involved in this event please reach out to me for more information firstname.lastname@example.org .
More about the cause that I am joining here in Denver:
Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. An estimated 5.4 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 15 million are acting as caregivers. It’s time to take action and change the course of this epidemic!
That’s why I’m taking the field with the Association Blondes vs. Brunettes®, a nationwide women’s flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My teammates and I are training and preparing for game day, but win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s.
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 tackle Alzheimer’s disease.
