Durwood "Dude" Fleetham - my Father. The nickname, Dude, given him by his big brother Edgar stuck with him throughout his life. He was an honest man, a loyal friend, a loving husband, and a wonderful father.
Alzheimer's took the last few years of his life from him, his family and friends. You who have experienced this know the sorrow, anger, pain, helplessness....... I, we, walk so that others will never need to endure these sorrowful days, weeks, months, and years.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and 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 for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
