Hi Family and Friends!
The boys and I will not be able to participate in the October 31, 2020 Alzheimer's Walk this year, but I encourage you to join the walk to End Alzheimer's disease. Your participation will be a wonderful memorial to Dave. This horrible disease has NO prevention and NO cure, unlike other fatal diseases. We can only hope that the current treatments hold off the disease for a few years. This disease has ravaged Dave's family and caused his death February 11, 2018 -- just 3 days before his 69th birthday.
The money raised at the Walk will go towards local Tucson programs -- several of which Dave and I participated in -- and desperately needed research at the national level. ALZ does not receive the same level of funding that other catastrophic diseases receive, although Congress has appropriated more funding in the past three years thanks to all of our efforts. We are "Burning Daylight" in the quest to find a cure for ALZ that might help our two sons, Ryan and Casey and our young grandsons, Cade and Henry. We are truly grateful for your help in this cause.
Thank you for your love and friendship.
Kim, Ryan, and Casey (and Dave in spirit)
We have raised
