My Diddy (dad) was always my best friend! I spent many hours on pond banks catching fish, learning to drive a stick, and so many more memories. He was 58/59 years old when he was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's. I should say "we" were diagnosed, because it effects EVERYONE involved. This walk is near and dear to my heart. I am passionate about this because I am passionate about the love I have for the first man I ever loved. I want to be able to give back and by raising money in his MEMORY is a way of my doing that. Please feel free to leave a note and if you want to donate, nothing is too small! Alzheimer's took my Diddy at 64, don't let it take someone you love.
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!
