I'm participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® in honor of my late Nana, Eileen Rippe. She was a spitfire who immigrated to the US from Ireland on her own as a teenager to create a life for herself. The ultimate matriarch, she raised 6 kids, was a grandmother to 11, & great grandmother to 1. A storyteller at heart, she always had a tale to tell, but her memory was slowly taken by this terrible disease. I know she would be the first in line to raise her voice and give to help end Alzheimer's if she was still with us today.
To honor her and the millions of others who have and continue to suffer, I ask that you join me by participating in the walk, raising funds, and spreading awareness for this cause so that we can help prevent more individuals from developing this heart breaking disease.
Thank you for joining the movement!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
