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. I play for my nonnie and my mom who has been my grandmothers caretaker for years now. I have seen firsthand how dementia and Alzheimer’s can affect a person and a family, and spreading awareness and raising funds for this cause is a passion of mine. Over my four years involved with RivALZ and the Alzheimer's Association, I have been amazed by how many people in my life have been affected by the disease in some way, and I am so proud to be a part of the efforts to END ALZHEIMERS!
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.
