Please take a moment to watch the video link below to truly understand how Alzheimer's has impacted my life and how it has changed my family forever. I wrote this speech for Writer's Week at the high school. It was one of the most empowering and humble moments of my life. I start around 10:30 and lasts about 9-10 minutes . You will have to copy the link and paste it into your browser and the sound doesn't work on phones.
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. 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.
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!
