Just a little over a year ago my mother-in-law passed away. She had been living with Alzheimer's for years and I got to see first hand what the disease did to her memory. In thinking of her journey, I am reminded of the Paul Simon song, "Bookends":
Time it was
And what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences
Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you
Imagine that you don't have the ability to preserve your memories and that you can't recognize the people in your photographs any more. The people you grew up with, the children you raised, all of the good times you shared ... taken away by a cruel disease. Now imagine a future where people don't have to endure that fate.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer's research- only dollars. By participating in the 2021 Ride to End ALZ, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
And you can help me. These dollars are desperately needed- for the more than 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, their 16 million caregivers, and millions more who have lost a loved one to this disease.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and their ground breaking momentum in the field of Alzheimer's research. 90% of the funds raised go toward the Association's efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Help me cycle towards a world with our first survivor and donate today!
