Our grandmother/mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers in 1992. She passed away 5 years later from a stroke. We watched a very strong, independent woman become so helpless and needy. It was very difficult to listen to her speak of her memories from long ago and not know about anything in the present day. I was very fortunate to have this woman in my life and will miss her dearly. I am walking for her, Helen Maxine Cockrell and the millions of others that suffer with this horrible disease. Let's find a cure together.
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’s 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 to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
