My Story

The PURPLE CANOE campaign launched in the fierce winds of June 2021 to help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Participating in The Longest Day, a fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association, is a meaningful way for me to help support the broad reaching efforts in beating dementias. The vision of "A World Without Alzheimer's and All Other Dementia" speaks to my heart. Both of my parents experienced different types of dementia and this is a small way to honor their memories and give back to those who supported us.


Through the Alzheimer's Association, I've become a strong public policy advocate I am in awe of the progress we have made! We need to partner with our lawmakers to continue to federally fund initiatives and implement new bills that support research, patients, families and caregivers. It is more important than ever as the many costs of dementias care and research are rising.


So...my husband and I will be fulfilling a bucket list item to paddle all 50 states only now, it will be in the PURPLE CANOE!! As of August, 2022, we have paddled 20 states - a major milestone was reaching Alaska! We hope to spread awareness, share stories and bring light to those impacted by dementia. Already, we have met so many wonderful people along the way. Ours is not just a one day endeavor we will continue our paddle adventures as long as dementia continues to afflict over 50 million people worldwide and we are able to lift a paddle!! We would love to meet you along the way!


Every dollar donated leads us one step, one paddle stroke, closer to a cure! Every donation speaks to my heart that there are others out there who share this vision. Every dollar given has great meaning and offers hope.


Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer's and make a donation on this site to help the Alzheimer's Association support the millions of people impacted by dementia.


Thank you so much for your support!!
