To my FB friends:
We had a very successful Walk to end Alzheimer's last year, and I'm hoping 2020 will be even better. However -- although there's a ton of research going on, and Biogen, Inc. has some really promising testing, as we "speak" -- we have a long way to go. And so I'm in early planning for my long Walk this Fall. (No date set yet.)
In our state of CA, some 670,000 have the disease; there are some 1.6 million caregivers; and I'm told that Alzheimer's has move up from the 3rd to the 2nd leading cause of death!.. .. .. Shit, people .. .. .. We have to keep on raising money for research and to help those living with/and caring for those living with this awful disease, as well as all of dementia. The Alzheimer's Assn. is the only organization with accomplishments towards ending this growing epidemic.
Please help with a donation. I know it's tax time - so keep this in mind for next year's tax deduction. (And, no doubt, I will be asking a few more times before the Walk this Fall.)
I thank you. And perhaps a close friend or family member will too.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
