is fundraising to honor:
My husband, Joe Kaufman
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease! I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
I have joined my son Benny's team although I will be walking the Cynwyd Heritage Trail with my daughter, Rebecca, and my husband, Joe, who suffers from Alzheimers. It will be a challenge because it is likely we will be pushing him in a wheelchair for most of the 4 mile trail.
Until the shut down due to Covid 19, Joe happily spent his days at the Main Line Adult Day Center. This past year has been additionally challenging because we have had to create a home based program to meet his needs for interaction, mental stimulation and exercise. We have gotten ideas, support and activities from the Alzheimer's Association.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.
Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
