Why I Ride: I started taking care of my grandmother with dementia at a young age, at only 17 years old, with the support of my mom, I took on the role as her primary caregiver. After taking care of her I went on to study abnormal psychology and gerontology at Ithaca College and have dedicated my career in memory care to her memory. I became passionate to learn more about the disease and to share what I've learned to help other people going through the same thing I went through with dementia.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. Which is why I am asking for your support. I am participating on the Ride to End ALZ, a fully-supported, one day fundraising event where every dollar raised supports the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer’s disease.
With each mile I ride, I am raising funds to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s. Thank you for cheering me on.
