I lost my Mom to Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease on May 17, 2000. She was only seventy-four years old. Here we are, twenty years later, and we still don’t have a cure. Since then, our family has watched three siblings suffer with this disease. We lost Betty in 2017 at age 64, Billy in 2019 at age 60, and we just lost Janis on Easter Sunday at age 59. We lost our cousin Gina twelve days later at age 63. Life is not supposed to be like this.
Alzheimer’s Disease is a thief. It first steals your memories, then it steals your ability to walk. After that, it takes your ability to speak coherently. Finally, it takes away your ability to eat, and ultimately your life. My family didn’t deserve this. No family deserves it. We won’t stop fighting for this cause until there is a cure.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 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.
