Linda's Walk Donation Page
Statistics show that 60% of caregivers of Alzheimer's patients die before their loved one who is living with the disease. Prior to my Mom's death in August of 2017, Mom helped care for a husband living with dementia. Gene could never fully understand what happened to Mom after she passed away. He lived another year, lost without her, and wondering why he couldn't find her. I walk today in Gene's memory and in honor of the life Mom and Gene shared before this dreadful disease had such a crippling effect on both of them.
By participating in the 2018 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™, I'm helping to reclaim the future for millions. 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 partner with me by making a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
