My Story

On June 21, I'm participating in The Longest Day, an event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. From sunrise to sunset, my team will complete an activity of our choosing to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

Alzheimer’s enrages me.  It is a long, slow, loss of life and self.  The person that is left is a shell of what they used to be.  Losing my father to the disease impacted my life so profoundly, and I have an insatiable need to do something about it.  Eight years as a caregiver drained me emotionally, physically, mentally, and socially.  Now that I have that energy back, I choose to be an advocate for awareness and change. 

Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia. And these numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.

Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
