Our mother, Jolene McCormick lost her life to Alzheimer's on June 20, 2019. The life she lived before she began the journey of this devastating disease was a life of loving and giving of herself to everyone she met. She managed to keep small pieces of herself til the last 2 days of her life, which is a miracle in itself. Her selfless love to all she encountered is her greatest legacy second only to her love of her family.
Our family appreciates any support you can give to ending this cruel disease that has grown to an epidemic.
Alzheimer's is the only top ten cause of death with NO cure, NO means of prevention and NO treatment to modify the disease. One is six women and and one in ten men who live to be at least 55 years old will develop ALZ in their lifetime. That means every family in the US will know someone with this disease. 5.7 Million Americans have ALZ and that number is expected to be 16 million by 2050. There has been an 89% increase in deaths from ALZ since 2004.
Please help to end this devastating disease that has taken the lives of so many loved ones. Our nation urgently needs to treat this disease with the vigor it has for cancer, aides or any of the other diseases that actually have prevention and treatment plans. If you cannot send donations I urge you to write your senator and congressmen to let them know this cannot be ignored.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
