We are walking in support of our spouse & dad, Tom, who has been struggling for about a decade now with a form of fronto temporal degeneration called primary progressive aphasia. He was diagnosed in his early 60s, and he now can barely speak and has difficulty understanding the simplest directions or statements. Cognitive skills have declined severely, also. There is no cure or treatment for this condition, and almost nothing is known about the cause -- although his neurologist suspects that it does have an Alzheimer's pathology.
Unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions. Join our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™, the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent these conditions, and provide programs to improve the lives of millions of affected Americans and their families.
