Those who know me well know that my mother, Fariba, means the world to me. Devastation struck my family when we finally learned that my sweet mother would no longer be able to speak, understand, walk or care for herself before she even hit the age of 60. My family has been in this battle with Dementia well over 10 years now, and I've been watching myself lose my mother slowly and painfully over the last decade to this monstrous disease.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
