As most of you know, my mom has been struggling with Alzheimer's for over 11 years now. She no longer knows who I am and hasn't said my name in over 2 1/2 years (I cheated on my birthday last year: I told her to say "Happy Birthday Janie" , and she repeated it. I needed to hear her say my name again.)
She used to at least have a spark of recognition when I go to visit her weekly. Many days, even that spark is gone.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
