Joe was diagnosed in March 2014. He needs more help these days and thanks to the love and support of family and friends - and a big dose of faith - he gets it! I couldn’t do it alone. My kids make it possible for us to do so many things. Four days a week he goes to Peggy’s Place, an adult day center. He has great friends there who keep him busy and socially active. In this quarantine time, he hasn’t been able to go. It takes a toll but he’s enjoying lots of outside time and walking in our neighborhood.
In the picture, Joe is with Throckmorten, an animated dog that is so cute and so realistic. He was a gift from daughter Laura and named after a neighbor’s dog from his childhood.
We’re not out of the woods yet! I'm raising funds to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support. There's lots to be done.
I know some may not be able to donate this year. I will gladly accept your thoughts and prayers! Let’s all do the best we can.
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.
Please consider a donation or join my team 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. I can't say enough about all the help they've given us!
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!
