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. Sadly, on August 14, 2017, my precious Mama became part of that caregiver statistic. Although she had physical limitations of her own, caring for a husband with Alzheimer's for the past few years definitely took a toll on Mom's health and likely robbed our family of a little more time with Mom. Alzheimer's is NOT limited to the person living with the disease; it is far-reaching in its devastation. It was heartbreaking to repeatedly remind Gene at the memorial service that his beloved Carrie had died, as he could not retain that information in his short-term memory.
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.
