is fundraising to honor:
Currently, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, and 16 million are serving as their caregivers. My mom, Linda carpenter, was among those 5 million Americans suffering and my siblings and I were among the 16 million watching a loved one suffer. My mom and dad moved to Seven lakes in 1983 and my mom absolutely LOVED this community. Unfortunately, around 2007 we began to notice a difference in her behavior. After much resistance and some intervention, she was originally diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment but eventually lost her life to Alzheimer's Disease. It has forever changed our lives and it is our desire, along with the Alzheimer's Association, to address this crisis by providing education and support to those living with dementia related diseases and to those caring for them. After watching what my family experienced, I know that we need critical research towards methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. The first Alzheimer's survivor is out there somewhere and I want to help find him or her.
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. The Racquet Club at Seven lakes will be hosting a day of tennis and/or pickleball from 8:00am-8:00pm. Please consider donating to The Alzheimer's Association through this page or come out and support our event on June 18th.
