I am so excited for another year of BvB Raleigh! I BvB in memory of my grandfather, Howard Yocum Sr., who passed after a battle with Alzheimer's and for my cousins' Poppy Raymond Sannie Sr., who also passed fighting this disease. This year I have a new reason to help fight Alzheimer's, my son, who I hope never has to see this disease and it's effects in his lifetime. Alzheimer's disease currently has no cure.....there are no survivors and I am hopeful that we can make the future better and that there will one day be a cure. Being a part of this organization means so much to me because I am doing my part so that other families will not have to go through what ours did with this disease.
We have our sights set on a $150,000 fund raising goal this year, but we need your help to get there. All donations of any size are very much appreciated!
*A donation of at least $25 will get you admission to the game on June 1
Alzheimer's disease is the nation's sixth-leading cause of death. An estimated 5.4 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 15 million are acting as caregivers. It's time to take action and change the course of this epidemic!
That's why I'm taking the field with the Association Blondes vs. Brunettes(R), a nationwide women's flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My teammates and I are training and preparing for game day, but win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer's.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research to discover methods of prevention, treatment and ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you in advance for your generosity - together, we can tackle Alzheimer's disease.
