Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. There are nearly 16 million friends and family members caring for them. The cost of caring for those with Alzheimer's and other dementias is estimated to total $236 billion in 2016. Nearly one in every three seniors who dies each year has Alzheimer's or another demential. It’s time to take action and change the course of this epidemic!
For the 5th year in a row, I have been involved with Blondes vs. Brunettes®, a nationwide women’s flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Over the last 3 years I have taken the field with my fellow Blonde team members to tackle this disease. While I have hung up my cleats, I continue to support this great event and cause by being the Chair of the Blondes vs. Brunettes® committee for the 2nd year in a row. Both teams will begin training soon to prepare for game day. 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.
