My grandmother Emma Keller and my father Lee Parr both suffered with Alzheimer's disease and my uncle Hugh Fairbanks suffered from dementia. It is such a terrible disease and so difficult for family members to watch loved ones to go through.
I hope you will be able to join our team and help to raise funds and awareness of Alzheimer's Disease. It is the 6th leading cause of death in America. The funds raised go toward research to find a cure and to help those inflicted with the disease and support their family and caregivers. Even if you are unable to donate any funds, please join our team just to show your support. If you can attend the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Manhattan on September 14 in Manhattan, we would love to walk together to remember Emma, Lee and Hugh.
Last year was the first walk ever in Manhattan. I saw the event advertised and decided to join. My friend Rachelle went with me in support. They were expecting 150 people and there were over 650 who walked. It was surprising to see how many lives are touched by such a terrible disease. We will meet at the City Park and join together for support and walk around the block of the park together. It is not a long walk for anyone who is not able to a walk a long distance.
I know September is still a ways away but hopefully this early notice will allow family and friends to add it to their calendar. Please join today. Thank you for your support.
