My Grandma was 4 ft 10 with the personality and strength of a giant! She was a caring nurse and loved her family very much. Sadly, Alzheimer's disease stole the little spit-fire we all loved in the most tragic way. My grandmother died alone, in the woods after wandering away from her adoring husband. She was still in excellent shape so the search was quite extensive but even a family who works around the clock can't save the person they love. Alzheimer's disease has no survivors! The fact is 6 out of 10 loved ones with Alzheimer's will wander. I'm walking to make sure that no more grandmas will die alone and lost.
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!
