is fundraising to honor:
Alzheimer's Disease is a thief. It steals memories. Mom doesn't remember that Snow White was the first movie she ever saw in a movie theater. She can no longer retell the story of how she sat in the balcony with her Daddy and her older siblings to get everyone out of the house the day my uncle was born. She can no longer tell you that the trees looked so real, they scared her.
Mom can no longer remember accompanying me on my big trip to Orlando to speak at a national nutrition conference, just five years ago. She cannot remember how proud she was of me. She doesn't remember meeting Snow White that week or the thrill of talking to her. Fortunately, I captured her joy. Right here. In this picture.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 6 million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 11 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.
Caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer's Disease is a marathon in life. A long, exhausting trip even with the support from friends and strangers along the way. I will be running 26.2 miles, my first official marathon road race, on March 6, 2022. I will be running every step in honor of Mom. All 60,000 of them.
I am asking you to stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation in Mom's name today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease.
Consider $88 for Mom's age this year or perhaps $26.20 for my first marathon. My goal is $2000 before Mom's birthday in April. Any amount will help further research and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
