is participating to honor:
her grandma, Lucille Harvey
I'm participating in The Longest Day in honor of my grandma, Lucille Harvey. She lived with Alzheimer's Disease for nearly 23 years, a lot longer than we were told she could survive. Because of the slow progression, at first, we witnessed so many aspects of what the disease does to those suffering from it, the caretakers, and all those who love them. The impact and the emotional toll is huge.
On June 21st, I am joining others around the world and doing what I love to honor people living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s .
Today, an estimated 47 million people across the world are living with dementia. This number is set to skyrocket to 75 million by 2030. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia. These numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
