Every 67 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's.
On Oct 14, 2014, at the age of 67, I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Our doctor here in Sheboygan sent us to UW Madison for testing because he felt that I would be a good candidate for research/clinical trials that they do there. I've been accepted to participate in a drug trial they are running. Administration of the drug started on Aug 17, 2015. I truly believe that it is my calling to do all I can to further the discovery of prevention, treatment, and cure of this devastating disease. This may not happen in my lifetime, but as I like to say, "If I can help someone else not have to go through what I am going through, it is worth it".
But, this research does not happen without funding. Alzheimer's disease can't currently be stopped or slowed. Every year, more than 450,000 people in 600 communities come together for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's – the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research.
We invite you to join our team. Please consider walking with us on Saturday, Sept 9 and raise funds, or donating to help us raise money for this important cause.
Here's how you can help.
