Our Story

Every 66 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's. I've watched my mom fight dementia for the last 10 years. And have seen the pain on my dad's face as he struggled to care for her and deal with his own feelings of frustration. I recall at one point thinking that God was preparing me for something that was in His plan for my life.

That time arrived on Oct 14, 2014 when my husband Brian, at the age of 67, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Our doctor here in Sheboygan sent us to UW Madison for testing because he felt that Brian would be a good candidate for research/clinical trials that they do there. He was recently accepted to participate in a drug trial they are running. Administration of dosage started on Aug 17, 2015.  Brian truly believes that it is his calling to do all he can to further the discovery of prevention, treatment, and cure of this devastating disease. This may not happen in his lifetime, but as he says, "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 10 and raise funds, or donating to help us raise money for this important cause.
