Amberetta's Walk Donation Page
My maternal grandmother, Peggy, got early onset Alzheimer's at the age of 50 and passed away in 2002 after a sixteen year fight with this awful disease. Ten years after Peggy's death, my maternal grandfather, Sanford, was also diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Sanford passed away in October 2015.
I'm walking for Sanford, to remember Peggy, and the countless others who have already lost their lives to this disease, and to help reclaim the future for all of us. By participating in the San Francisco Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
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.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
