A week after my dad's funeral in 2017, I walked for the first time. After a long decline due to Alzheimer's disease, my dad was gone and I had a purple flower in my hands. To see so many others that day holding purple flowers, representing they too had lost someone to the disease, struck me in a profound way. This day was about honoring my dad, but also about understanding the loss so many families have endured and re-doubling efforts to end the large-scale reach of the disease.
You can help us work toward a victory over Alzheimer's. For my dad. For so many others. Whether you walk, donate, or just stay aware, let's do our best to remember the purple flowers...and the fight ahead.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's and more than 16 million are serving as their caregivers. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. By participating in and/or donating to the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, we lead the way to a day when we celebrate Alzheimer's first survivor.
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!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
