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 very close friends, whom I consider family, that are having to face Alzheimer’s and/or Dementia with family members as I type this. As we are seeing the challenges of these horrible diseases with them, we feel the emotional toll it takes on all the loved ones and realize just how difficult it is to have a loved one in this condition. From the first signs of these diseases to the final days, it is not an easy road to travel for anyone involved. For them and all of you that have in the past or are dealing with loved ones facing Alzheimer's and/or Dementia now, I am proud to be helping with a cause that is near and dear to you.
We need to find a cure ASAP!!! I have been told it can be genetic, so I do not want to see any of my friends, whom I love dearly, suffer through this disease, therefore, I am all in for them!!!!
Sending love and prayers to BK & family.
Please support my participation in RivALZ, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer’s. We may be opponents on the field, but when it comes to Alzheimer’s/Dementia, we’re all on the same side. This is a disease that must be defeated and we need your help to do it. Your donation will advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s or Dementia!
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.
