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.
My darling husband Charles Peck was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010. Alzheimer’s caused Charles’ death eight years later. He dealt with this difficult disease with honesty and courage. The Alzheimer’s Association helped us in many ways. Together, we attended an Early Stage Memory Loss Forum two years in row. This helped us both to come to terms with how to live as fully as possible in the shadow of dementia. I attended a caregivers’ support group for several years, giving me knowledge and strength to support Charles. We both participated in Alzheimer’s Advocacy Day at the WA state capitol to support policy changes to help people with dementia and their families. The Alzheimer’s Association is a source of practical help and hope for the future for so many families.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
