As OneFamily, we have been touched by losing multiple loved ones to this disease and have seen the impact it has on so many. We continue the fight for those with the disease and to honor those from our family, including aunt Dolores Shappert, aunt Josephine Cummings, uncle Henry A Fischer, uncle Bill Cummings, Barbara Satala, Marge Noettl, Betty Schaeffer, Hugh/Maureen N., and Bettye McMillan S.
Currently, Alzheimer's is 6th leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 in America that can't be prevented, cured, or even slowed. But what if one day it could be cured? By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R) -- the world's largest fundraiser to fight the disease -- you can help make that beautiful day happen and change the course of these trends related to Alzheimer's. Over prior year numbers, trends continue to increase and therefore your help is even more critical:
- In this country alone, someone develops Alzheimer's every 65 seconds and currently more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease
- In 2019, Alzheimer's will cost the United States over $277 billion. This number is expected to rise to over $1.1 trillion by 2050
- In 2018, over 15.9 million American caregivers provided an estimated 18.4 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $232 billion
Will you join the fight for the first survivor of Alzheimer’s and this ever increasing epidemic? Across the country this year so many communities will plan walks and fund raise, including at the Nashville walk on Saturday October 17th, 2020 at Nissan Stadium, to provide ongoing support for those battling Alzheimer’s and to contribute to the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association in changing the trajectory of this memory and life stealing disease and find a cure.
Please consider donating to our team today and helping the Alzheimer's Association efforts through the Walk to End Alzheimer's fundraising.
