My name is Kirsti and I am the Clinical Helpline Coordinator at the Alzheimer's Association. Every day I work with people that have this disease as well as their caregivers to provide resources and support throughout this difficult time. It is heartbreaking to see how many people are effected; an estimated 5.4 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 15 million are acting as caregivers.
That’s why I’m taking the field with Rivalz, a nationwide women’s flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My teammates and I 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.
