I'm walking because my grandmother died from dementia, and my Mom, at 99, is suffering with Alzheimer's. Each year the inexorable decline continues. It is heartrending to watch as my mother sinks into a mind that only contains negativity. Even good events are twisted into bad ones. Soon, she will not recognize even me. How awful it must be when your own brain is working so hard to make life miserable for you!
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions of us who are now at risk. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
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.
Our government finally earmarked over $400 million for Alzheimer's research this year. Thanks to everyone who wrote to their legislators on behalf of this extreme need.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
