One Family (Joe)'s Walk Donation Page
Join the fight for Alzheimer’s first survivor!
On Saturday October 14th the Nashville community will be one of over 600 communities nationwide during 2017 that will team together to fight Alzheimer’s disease. As part of a family touched by this horrible disease, the Alzheimer Walk Planning Committee, and the Brookdale team, we will be walking to help the fight in finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and providing support to those currently impacted by it. This walk also represents our family honoring the memory of family and friends who battled this disease, including my father Henry, my aunt Josephine Cummings, Barbara Satala, Marge Noettl, uncle Bill Cummings, and those family members and friends who continue to battle this disease.
Currently, Alzheimer’s is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that can’t be prevented, cured, or even slowed. But what if one day it could? By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® — the world’s largest fundraiser to fight the disease — you can help make that beautiful day happen and change the course of these trends related to Alzheimer’s:
- In this country alone, someone develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds and currently more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease
- In 2017, Alzheimer's will cost the United States $259 billion. This number is expected to rise to over $1 trillion by 2050
- In 2016, 15.9 million American caregivers provided an estimated 18.2 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $230.1 billion
Please consider donating to our team today and helping fight this, joining us for Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Nashville on Saturday, October 14th at Walk of Fame Park (or one of the other walks across the country). If you are interested in creating a team, or join as existing team to fight this, feel free to contact me directly (Joe Fischer, email@example.com; 312-961-5116). Together, we can all end Alzheimer’s disease!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
