I am very passionate about my support for the Alzheimer's organization.  It has been 9 years since my mother passed away from Alzheimer's.  I am walking in honor of my mom, friends and families who are suffering from this horrible disease.  There are no survivors of Alzheimer's to tell victory stories - YET

Every 65 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease.- resulting in nearly half a million new cases this year.  Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States,.  Between 2007 and 2017, the number of deaths from Alzheimer's disease as recorded on death certificates has more than doubled, increasing 145 percent, while the number of deaths from the number one cause of death, heart disease has decreased 9 percent. 

Unfortunately, the annual Alzheimer's Walk at Bishop Ranch in San Ramon has been cancelled this year due to Covid-19,  I invite you to walk on October 24th at 10:30 am in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. I would love to connect with you on FaceTime while we each walk 3 miles in our area.  

I am asking you for your support to do my part.  I realize the lock down due to Covid-19 has affected the pocketbooks of everyone.  Any donation you can make will help the Alzheimer's Association enhance Alzheimer's care and support the advancement of critical research for all those affected by this devastating disease.  Alzheimer's research is vastly underfunded compared to the funding of other major diseases in the United States.  

I can't thank you enough for your past generous support.  I hope you will join me in fighting this disease by sending a donation; every penny helps.

Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

Thank you,

Cheryl Gross
