This cause is very meaningful to me because my grandmother has Alzheimer's and it has been so hard to see her mind go and her behaviors change as she has gone through each stage of the disease. I'm grateful that she still remembers her family, but she has already forgotten many of our names and gets us confused with each other. It's heartbreaking to see her struggle every day to hold on to all of her memories, let alone remember the day to day things we all take for granted. I'm appreciating every moment and trying to create new memories with her every chance I have. I wish there was a cure now so I could see my grandmother be her normal self again.
So, I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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 make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
