Seventeen years ago I lost my grandfather to vascular dementia. I watched as the kindest and most gentle, loving man I knew disappeared and then died. He died alone, not recognizing the people around him.
Three years ago I lost my other grandfather, a brilliant man who loved life. He slipped away from us with Parkinson's related dementia.
I want to end this.
I'm walking to 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 research, care and support.
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.
I need your support! Please consider Joining me on Saturday, October 26, 2019 or making a donation to my team that will help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and 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 me!
