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!
As you may know, we lost my grandfather, Richard "Poppy" Morey, to complications related to Alzheimer's disease in the fall of 2012. More recently, we also lost my aunt Sharon's mother, Sherrill Carbonetti in March 2019 the same way.
As you may also know, I played competitive flag football throughout college and have continued to play year-round since that time. For these reasons and others I have signed up with RivALZ®, a nationwide women's flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. This years matchup will take place at 12 pm on Saturday, April 27 at TDECU Stadium at the University of Houston. This year I will be taking the field with the Brunette team to take on the Blondes, all while helping to raise support and awareness for Alzheimer's research. Come see all the action by simply donating $25 per person.
The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research, and the funds I raise will go directly toward their efforts. 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.
