Bill Dierker, our dad passed away on October 16th , 2018 from early onset Alzheimers. He was just 56 years old . He battled this disease with the help of great doctors and wonderful caregivers for six years. These years were very difficult at times for Dad and our family, and the heartache was exasperated because there is no cure for this disease.
We want to do everything we can to end a disease that took our father away. Funding for research is key to combatting Alzheimers. Our family would like to do as much as we can, to further research and help other families and the Alzheimer's community. My dad would have led this effort if he had had any idea how devastating this disease can be.
Many of you friends and families have supported are Alzheimers walk effort for the last four years. Together we have raised over $400,000. Please mark you calendar for September 22nd, 2019 and join us again by walking and supporting our team, Bill's Buddies and The Ganzhorn Gang! As a team, we can make a significant contribution in finding the cure for Alzheimer’s. We want to end this disease; we know our dad does too!
