I walk to honor the memory of my grandmother, Aiko "Alice" Okamoto who lost her battle with Alzheimer's in December 2016. A woman who would give you the shirt off her back, the fresh pie she just baked and the last flower from her yard. My grandma was a self-less person who always put everyone else first, and this time I am putting her first, never to forget her memory and move towards a world without the disease that took my grandma from us.
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.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
