Friends: In December, both of my parents were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. While they are both in the early stages, the news is heartbreaking.
I am inspired by the strength of the more than 5 million Americans living with this disease, and the 16 million family members and friends who provide them with care. I am also inspired by science. Sadly, we are outliving the progress of science.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. This 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 helping all those affected by this disease.
