Karen's Walk Donation Page
My grandmother would walk everyday, always had a crossword puzzle to keep her busy, and never missed the lottery before bed. She loved being independent and i believe thats how she managed to live on her own until she was 89. She did it so well in fact that we didn't know she was sick until she unknowingly told us.
Alzheimer's took her memories of a life well lived, memories of her family, memories that should have lasted a lifetime. Although she is living comfortably in a nursing home these days, she is all together a different person. A shell of her former self. This is what Alzheimer's does.
We have all learned to adjust to our new normal. My grandmother is happy and otherwise healthy and thats what matters. I love her just the same.
By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's 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 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.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
