Thank you for all who have supported me the last couple of years as I raise funds and awareness to fight Alzheimer's. I'm walking again this year and encourage others to join me as we 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.
I was introduced to the disease in middle school when my Nana was diagnosed with dementia while living in our home. She passed away a few years later. In 2014, my other grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Unfortunately, I am unable to visit her often as she lives far away, but I have watched this disease attack her and take its toll on our entire family. In my recent visits with her, she is still smiling, but she is speaking less and getting slower. Her daughter, my aunt, also was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia and early onset Alzheimer's at the young age of 64 and is currently living in a memory care facility.
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!
