I started doing BVB 5 years ago for my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's and this year she turns 83 years young. My Grandma played such a monumental part in mine and my twin sister's upbringing.
The impact this disease has on family and friends that are affected by it is indescribale and it's incredibaly hard to understand from the outside so take it from someone on the inside. If I can have the smallest impact to help a grandchild/friend/family never have to experience what I am going through then I know I have done my job! If you aren't personally close to this cause please be extremely thankful. TRUST ME!
I am lucky she still remembers who I am but I know the day will come when that won't be the case anymore. But as for right now I can help tackle this the only way I know how, FUNDRAISING and bringing more awareness about Alzheimer's.
Help tackle this with me!
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!
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, 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!
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.
