Melissa's Walk Donation Page
I'm walking in honor of my dad and to help reclaim the future for millions. Alzheimer's took my father far too soon and watching him struggle with this awful disease was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced. It breaks my heart that my little girls will not get to know the wonderful 'papa' they had and how he would have loved watching them grow up. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, 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!
