A thief in the night that steals the thoughts and dreams of those affected, Alzheimer's is relentless. You cannot yet fight or protect yourself from this deadly intruder. It first steals your short term memory, then your logic and reasoning, bodily functions and ultimately your life. It is ALWAYS fatal. The only unknown is for how long one will suffer from its complications.
My grandmother and Robyn's father died from Alzheimer's complications and my mother was diagnosed roughly five years ago. It has been a long, lonely and challenging road. Too little is known, lack of resources and no cure only add to the pain and suffering. With more than 5 million in the U.S. (35 million Worldwide) affected by the disease, a number that is expected to skyrocket my mid-century, we MUST accelerate our efforts to find a cure.
Please join me in the fight against Alzheimer's so no other individual or family is affected by this hideous disease.
TOGETHER We CAN End Alzheimer's!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
