Michele's Walk Donation Page
My father was diagnosed with Alzheimers much too young. We lost dad very shortly after the diagnosis. He was there with the same blue eyes and charming smile but he no longer knew his family or his own history. My dad was gone long before he died. Having your parent no longer know you is a kind of heartbreak I would wish on no one. I will continue to walk each year in his memory but also to do whatever I can to prevent this horrible disease from hurting yet another family. My children have lost 2 grandparents to dementia and I pray everyday that they never have to face such an awful diagnosis again. You will see the alarming statistics as you continue reading. If you have not yet been touched by this disease, the sad fact is that you will. Someone you know, care about, count on will face dementia. Please consider a donation and help prevent others from facing the heartbreak of being forgotten by someone they will never forget.
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.
