As most of you have probably heard by now, my father, Clay Pfeiffer, passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease almost 3 years ago. In November of 2017, we had to move him to an assisted living facility as the disease continued to advance quickly.
This has been a very difficult transition for me and my family, but the Lord has been with us and has been faithful every step of the way. We have also been encouraged by so many of you with your prayers and genuine concern/compassion for our family.
I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's because it is a great way for my family and I to remember my father, an incredible man who has been such an amazing, loving, and caring father and great role model to my brother Brett and I as well as a loving, devoted husband to my mother Marilyn for over 44 years. It is a great way to remember all of the great times we had together and lessons we learned from him as well as helping make everyone aware of this awful disease and raise money to help find a cure for it.
Our family is no stranger to Alzheimer's, as my grandmother (my dad's mother), Beatrice Pfeiffer, was also diagnosed with the disease later in her life.
We're helping lead the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, which takes place in Grand Rapids, MI on Saturday, September 14.
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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please consider making a donation to advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
