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.
I was the caregiver for my mother who had Alzheimer's and she was relieved of this torturous disease when she pasted away in December 2012. Because of the agonizing experience of watching my mother deteriorate in front of me and not being able to do anything to help her, other than to try to keep her safe, I feel a strong obligation to take action and change the course of this epidemic!
That’s why I’m voluntering to assist 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. Our teams are training and preparing for game day, but 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.
