I fund-raise for the Alzheimer's Association to help reclaim the future for millions. My involvement began with my sorority, Sigma Kappa, and each year, I volunteer with other sisters at the Portland, Oregon, Walk to End Alzheimer's. I continue to participate because my immediate and extended family and friends have been affected by this disease. In addition, I work as a long-term care pharmacist where, every day, I talk with patients, family members, and care givers, many who are affected by Alzheimer's and other related dementia diseases.
I continue to walk in memory of my father-in-law, and my mother-in-law who served as his primary care giver for a number of years. I gladly served as part of her support system.
After they had both passed away, I knew that I would do it again if asked. And, I now assist with some of the needs of an uncle who was diagnosed in May 2016 with dementia. And, I lost another uncle to a dementia-related disease in October 2018.
Even more reason to continue to walk, advocate, and fund-raise.
Please consider 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 helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
