Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s epidemic. Nearly two-thirds of the Americans living with Alzheimer’s – and more than 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers – are women. It’s time to take action by taking the field!
My family and I have been affected by this disease. My grandpa Heriberto Cantu, developed Alzheimer's about 5 years ago and it has progressed quickly. Its been hard knowing that when I visit him he doesn't remember me, but I stay positive and make the best with the time I have to see him, even if he doesn't know who we are. This cause is very personal to not only me but to everyone in my family especially my mother. I will be honoring my grandfather by participated and raising for a world without Alzheimer's.
Please support my participation in RivALZ, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer’s. We may be opponents on the field, but when it comes to Alzheimer’s, we’re all on the same side. This is a disease that must be defeated and we need your help to do it. Your donation will advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s!
