This July I will be participating in the fight to end Alzheimer’s with the Bluefin Blowout, New England’s premier giant bluefin tuna fishing tournament taking place in historic Gloucester, MA, benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. All funds raised help to advance the care and support of local families facing this disease, and advance research efforts for a cure.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5.8 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 Million friends and family members are providing their care with an estimated value of $234 Billion. In 2019 Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the US $290 Billion.
We must take action now, these numbers will continue to rise.
Shine a light on Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
