I'm walking 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.
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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation 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. My hope is that treatment/a cure is doable within my lifetime and no one will have to watch their loved one suffer as I watched my Nana deteriorate with this condition.
I walk in memory of my beloved Nana whom suffered from this terrible disease and for my Grampa who stood by her side as she slipped away from us. It was heartbreaking to watch the twinkle leave my vibrant Nana's eye as she lost the ability to remember. While I felt helpless as she suffered, I never felt hopeless. I feel hope in the Alzheimer's Association's ability to fund research to find a cure so that no one else will have to suffer through this experience.
Last year with your help, I was able to raise over $3,500, this year my goal is to break $3,000. 2020 has been a difficult year for so many, but research is progressing to combat this disease with your help. 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!
