I am walking in honor of my Dad and for my Husband. My Dad died of Alzheimer's in 2017 and my husband, Donald, is living with Alzheimer's. This disease has greatly affected my life and my loved ones.
I am a volunteer speaker for the Alzheimer's Association in my local area and I work diligently to bring dementia awareness to our community by offering education on what to look for and how to locate resources to help families.
I am currently participating in an Alzheimer's research program/study at Houston Methodist. This study is focusing on Early onset Alzheimer's and I have been chosen as a Healthy participant. My dedication to finding a cure for this disease goes beyond just walking and fundraising, I truly believe that we will some day find a cure and I hope that my participation in this study will contribute to that.
Please consider donating for this walk. Join my team at http://act.alz.org/goto/beaumontelks311 or donate under my page.
If you are not able to donate but would like to come to the Walk it is on October 10th. There will not be a large all in one event this year. Instead we will be walking at the Beaumont Elks Lodge at 11431 Highway 90, Beaumont, TX 77713 (across from Exxonmobil) If you can't walk you are welcome to come out and cheer on the team. There will be chairs under the patio.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
