I'm walking because my life has been touched by Alzheimer's. I have dear friends - a couple - and one of them has Alzheimer's. BOTH of them are LIVING with Alzheimer's! I have other dear friends who have cared for loved ones who had Alzheimer's and who tell of the toll it took on families unprepared for the severity of the symptoms and the impact on family caregivers.
I'm walking because my life continues to be touched by Alzheimer's. I train Home Instead CAREGivers who provide care for seniors so they can stay at home, with dignity and respect and a little extra support. Many of those seniors are living with some degree of Alzheimer's or another dementia.
I'm walking because the more I learn about Alzheimer's and its impact on individuals and families, the more I want to be part of alleviating the distress and anxiety of everyone associated with this disease.
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!
