Early in my life, I saw how hard it was for my grandmother, Evelyn, to care for my grandfather, Chock, as the onset of the Alzheimer's disease took hold. It made me realize how this disease impacts families. But to later witness its progression in my grandmother was heartbreaking. Although I may have represented a small portion of time in her life, not being able to recognize her children and loved ones was heart-breaking. To see the fear in her eyes when she doesn't recognize her surroundings or loved ones broke my heart. Yes, there were sparks of recognition, but those were few and far between. Now that I am older, I know more people affected by this disease. My best friend lost her dad and many more are now trying to balance work and being a care giver during the pandemic. Won't you help to end ALZ and all dementia?
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the 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 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. Will you join me? Together we can find a cure to end Alzheimer's disease and all dementia.
