My connection to the Alzheimer's Association is extremely personal. My wonderful mother was diagnosed with this insidious disease almost 10 years ago. During that time, our family cared for her at home, with my extraordinary dad shouldering the brunt of the responsibility. Last August marked a turning point. We could no longer safely and adequately provide the round the clock care that was required. The difficult decision was made to place mom in a memory care facility. After extensive research and site visits, our family chose Grand View Alzheimer's Special Care Center to be mom's new home. They have demonstrated extreme care and compassion towards my entire family, making this difficult transition much more bearable. We are delighted to be partnering with Grand View this year to help raise funds for such an important cause.
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. There is no cure. Funding for research is the only answer.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My family and I would be forever grateful for your support.
