Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. My family knows this first-hand as we lost my Grandpa Lukacs in November 2014. He was the biggest cheerleader for all of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren at sporting events and musical performances, but at the end he couldn't even remember who we all were.
There are over 5 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease in 2017, including approximately 200,000 individuals younger than age 65. By 2050, the number of people with Alzheimer's disease may reach 16 million, barring the development of a medical breakthrough to prevent or cure the disease. It's time to take action by taking the field!
Please support my participation in Blondes vs. Brunettes, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer's. Your donation will advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
If you're in the DC area, come out and watch the game in November! A donation of $25 will secure you a ticket.
Thank you for supporting our goal to tackle this disease - win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer's!
