Hello and thanks for visiting my page!
I am Myrna and I work every day toward finding the first Alzheimer's survivor so that families will no longer have to suffer through this devastating disease that robs them of their loved ones over and over again.
As of today, I do not have a direct connection (that I am aware of) to this disease -- YET. I know it's yet because in the US another person develops Alzheimer's EVERY 65 seconds and 1 in 3 seniors will die with Alzheimer's or another dementia.
Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and the only one in the top 10 without a treatment or cure. Being diagnosed with cancer or HIV today is no longer a death sentence for everyone -- Alzheimer's is. This is the biggest public health crisis.
And so I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
