Every 65 seconds someone in the US is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. About 7 years ago, my Dad was one of them. Four years ago, sadly, he died from the disease. Alzheimer's is a one way street, it's just a matter of the rate at which someone goes down that path. For him, it was relatively quick, but regardless of speed, it was the most brutal deterioration of a human being's ability to live that I've ever witnessed. Alzheimer's Disease is relentless, it spares no one that it touches, including those that care for those with the disease.
The Mission of the Alzheimer's Association is to end Alzheimer's Disease and all other dementias. In addition to research, much of their funding goes to support those who care for those with the disease through free services including a 24 hour hotline, information seminars, community forums and support groups.
Let's continue to support those who care for those with the disease as well as continue to battle to find it's first survivor. You can help.
Please join me in the fight for a neighbor, a co-worker, a family member, for my Dad. Join the fight for them and all of their caregivers. Join our team, donate to our team, walk with us on 9/26 at The Battery at Truist Park and #ENDALZATL.
