Why I Ride For Alzheimers
Most of you know that my Mom suffered with Alzheimers for many years until her passing this past March. We slowly watched her deteriorate over a 10 year period. She was a sweet and loving wife, mother and grandmother.
Before my pharmacy career, I worked at Wyeth as a researcher in the pharmacology lab. We were working to develop an Alzheimers treatment back then. I worked on that project for 5 years and when I left, we still hadn’t found a compound that showed good potential in treating this disease. That was 26 years ago. I fully understand the time and money that goes into the research to develop new products and why it’s so important to keep the money flowing into research.
This event is a 30-mile cycling ride in Rye, NH. Please donate to me directly with a check or cash or you can visit my site below. Thank you!
Please support me in the “Ride to End Alzheimers” because we all know someone who suffers with this disease and we know how it impacts their life and the lives of those who love them. Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. It is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. While dementia is more common as people grow older, it is not a normal part of aging.
Please support me!
