My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when I was around 20 years old. The only feeling I can describe when we first noticed signs, is that I was terrified of what might be happening to our mom. Since then, it has impacted my family and I more than we could have ever imagined. There is no cure, and the harsh reality is that with each passing day the disease gets worse.
I have never been outspoken about this disease in the past, but I am inspired by people in my life who are also impacted and fight to find the cure. That’s why this year, I am walking in the San Francisco Walk to End Alzheimer’s on November 10th. Each year, the walk raises millions of dollars to fund research for the cure. As a comparison, during 2018 Alzheimer’s disease will cost the nation $277 billion.
Every donation made will help pave the way to continue research and bring us one step closer. If you can’t donate at the moment, I invite you to come walk with us on November 9th at Pier 27. Awareness is equally as important, and if you choose to join us I encourage you to tell others why you are walking. Thank you for taking the time to read.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
