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 research, care and support. I have joined the local Walk to End Alzheimer's planning committee because I am passionate about this cause and I want to make a difference.
I have a personal connection to this disease. Mom passed away on March 14, 2014. She spent the last year and a half of her life at Sugar Creek Special Care Alzheimers Center in Normal, IL. It was devastating to see the decline in Mom's health as the disease progressed. It was heartbreaking to observe the deterioration of Mom's physical and cognitive abilities, the loss of interest in the people and things she loved, and the disappearance of her personality over time.
Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
Thank you for your support!
