Daneen's Walk Donation Page
I walk in memory of my Mother (the lovely lady in the picture) and all the other family members who we lost or who are suffering with this dreadful disease.
I'm walking because I want an end to Alzheimer's! Too many people have this disease! By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
My Mother lived the last year and a half of her life in a dementia unit. My Dad's brother and sister died of Alzheimer's, as did another aunt and uncle. Friends' parents had the disease. Friend's spouses have the disease. I do not want it and I want an end for future generations.
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 truly need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you and me.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
