I'm participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® in Lynchburg on September 19 in remembrance of Helen Keeley Murphy, "Nanny," and as usual, I am running behind getting the word out!
I am committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support, and research to find the cause and cure for this deadly disease.
I was shocked to learn that is now the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. According to Alzheimer's Association calculations, today, there are between 200,000 to 500,000 people under age 65 with young-onset Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia and 1 in 3 seniors die of Alzheimer's or other dementia.

I'm helping to lead the way to Alzheimer's first survivor — but I need your help!

As Nanny used to say, "I'm ready when you are!"
