My Story

My name is James. And I love movies. For those of you that know me...this isn't much of a shock! I am also the Director of Programs & Advocacy at the Alzheimer's Association Desert Southwest Chapter where we have this amazingly awesome event every year called The Longest Day held on the Summer Solstice, June 21st. This sunrise to sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey those living with the disease and their caregivers have to endure each and everyday. And this will be my 4th year, along with my teammates (because I am not the only movie-obsessed freak out there), doing what we love by be spending all day long at the movie theater watching film after film AND raising much needed funds for all of the Alzheimer's Association programs & services.

Today, over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's including more than 150,000 Arizonans. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's disease. And those numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action. In the state of Arizona, Alzheimer's disease is the 4th leading cause of death and receives the least amount of federal funding for research to find a intervention or prevention.

I will be doing what I enjoy while bringing awareness to Alzheimer's disease during the summer solstice, remembering my Grandmother who passed away from dementia and my grandfather and father who were her people living with this devasting disease, their caregivers and family, everyday is The LONGEST DAY!!

Please help me reach my goal, or create your own team and try to raise money and awareness yourself by doing what you love best all day in support of The Longest Day!

XOXO, James
