Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s epidemic. Nearly two-thirds of the Americans living with Alzheimer’s – and more than 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers – are women. It’s time to take action by taking the field!
I have laced up my pink cleats for 3 years with BvB Dallas and served on the leadership team there for two years. Now that I am in DC, I am getting involved in the inaugural chapter of Blondes vs Brunettes and look forward to making an impact (off the field) here! Your donation will advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
As many of you know, I lost my great Aunts to this disease and Coach Daryl K Royal, one of the Trustees of the Foundation from which I received my scholarship to The University of Texas at Austin. I give a lot of credit to Coach Royal for my being awarded the scholarship as he made me laugh during the interview, which immediately put me at ease.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s!
To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
