My Story

On June 15th I'm participating in The Longest Day, an event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. My father, Steve, was diagnosed with Early Stage Younger Onset AD at age 59. He passed away on April 2, 2018. His patience and optimism were an outstanding example to us all through out his 6 year journey. My mother dedicated herself to caregiving and advocacy that hasn’t ended with my dad’s passing. I also wish to honor my grandmother, Claire, who we lost to this disease in May. From sunrise to sunset, my team will complete activities such as walking, swimming, hosting a lemonade stand, and remembering loved ones at “the longest dinner table” to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. These funds are vital not only for those currently suffering, but also to help prevent this challenge for future generations.

Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the US. It is the only cause of death in the top 10 with no effective prevention, treatment, or cure. 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.
