This year Amy Hood accepted the position as EVENT CHAIR of the Springfield Alzheimer's Walk - in honor of her mom, Joyce Erickson, who passed with Alzheimer's in 2019. There is NO CURE for Alzheimer's either, no vaccine, no MASK you can wear to prevent the most expensive disease. One person every 65 seconds is diagnosed... you don't see that on the news every day. SIGNING UP for the walk is FREE! If you register and raise $100 - you get a Walk t-shirt!
Amy's Mom fought Alzheimer's for years... she was frustrated and confused...but the entire family was even MORE frustrated, confused, and sad because they felt so HELPLESS. 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!
