At the Alzheimer's Association, and for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease, The Longest Day is all about love. On the longest day of the year, we do what we love, for who we love, to end Alzheimer's.
Hello, my name is Zane... many of you may know me as "The West Briar Goalie."
On the longest day of the year, I am doing what I love to honor my grandmother, Mémé, and all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease - I'm playing Lacrosse!
The West Houston Lacrosse Association is welcoming our new coach, Coach Song, with a scrimmage game and we are dedicating the game to my efforts to raise awareness to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. In the U.S. alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and other dementias.
My grandmother is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. She is one of the most awesome grandmothers - the kind that always let us have ice-cream for breakfast and stay up as late as we wanted. She lives in a "memory-care" residence now - but she LOVES when she comes to watch us play.
Tomorrow, my team will be honoring Mémé by wearing purple to our practice. I'm sure my mom will share lots of pictures! Our team will take one big picture to share with my grandmother so she will see how people shared their love with her on The Longest Day.
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease that they are not alone.
I am trying to raise $10/hour of sunlight tomorrow - $160. If you would like to help me meet my goal, please make a donation and help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease.

The dollars you raise fuel the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
