I have created a team (Renie's Rowdies) in memory of my Mom who passed away from this devastating disease in 2012. I am asking all family & friends to join our team & come walk with us in November, date to be announced @ Citizen's Bank Park.
When I took my Mom for initial testing for Alzheimer's, she couldn't answer many of the test questions. When it came to the end of the test the Dr said “ write a sentence “. She was writing very little at the time but she clearly wrote “ I have 3 beautiful daughters”. I will never forget the day, a year later when my Mom looked at me & asked me "why did you call me Mom?" Alzheimer's took everything from her and from all of us who loved her.
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. And hopefully to find the 1st Alzheimer's Survivor.
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.
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!
