I hate asking people for money, but I hate this disease much, much more. My vibrant, smart, funny, loving father died from Alzheimer's almost three years ago, after it robbed him of what should have been fulfilling final decades of his life. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support, so that others don't have to go through what my family did.
If you are a 65-year-old woman, you have a 33-50% higher chance of getting Alzheimer's than you do of getting breast cancer. Alzheimer's kills more people each year than breast and prostate cancers combined. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's, and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. If you have not been affected yet by this disease, the unfortunate current reality is that you or some one you know will be, unless we find a cure or treatment soon. All of our futures or the futures of those we love are at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with all of us. Thank you!
