Alzheimer’s has personally impacted the McCarthy Clan. On December 10, 2017, Florence J. McCarthy, our beloved Flurry, passed away. He is no longer suffering from the ravages of this disease. Two other members of our clan are living with Alzheimer's, so our commitment continues. Our team is walking to raise awareness, fund research, and promote healthy brain activities as well as to support our family, friends, caregivers and the communities that have been impacted by this disease. Alzheimer's disease is now the fifth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. We are hopeful that the developments of medical breakthroughs to prevent or cure the disease are close at hand so that our children and grandchildren will live in a world without ALZ. The predictions about the wide reach and devastating effects of dementia and cognitive impairment are staggering. Alzheimer’s researchers are very close to significant discoveries that could lead to future medications and prevention. They need money and volunteers. We invite you to join the fight for the First Survivor and a better future for everyone affected every day by Alzheimer's. You can help by donating to our team: McCarthy Brainwaves; or to the Alzheimer’s research organization/event of your choice.
