I am participating in The Walk to End Alzheimer's® this year in honor of my aunt, Bette Herod who was diagnosed in 2010 with this grueling disease. I am also walking in memory of my dear grandmothers, Maggie Ogletree and Christine Skidmore.
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. I want to do my part in leading the way to Alzheimer's very first survivor. I would love to see this happen in my lifetime and will do all I can to help.
If by giving any dollar amount, whether it be $25 or $10,000 could help find a cure and spare someone from having to watch their loved one suffer from this horrific disease, it would be worth it all. For me, there is nothing worse than seeing your grandmother standing before you with glazed eyes and they have no idea who you are. You see their body but you know everything inside of them is already gone. We must find a cure.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
