It's hard to believe that more than a year has passed since my brother Rob was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's. While Alzheimer's generally affects older adults, it can also affect people in their 30's, 40's and 50's. Unfortunately, there is still no cure for Alzheimer's.
Rob is now 57 and (in typical Rob style) refuses to let this horrible disease get the better of him! He is still working full time. More importantly, he is still active and loving life! He continues to travel (though limited due to the pandemic) and is still golfing, running, biking and even did some scuba diving this past spring! Has faced his diagnosis like he does all things in life - with a positive attitude, accepting that which he cannot change and vowing to make the best of all the good years he has left!
I am participating in the 2020 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.
