This is my 13th year participating in a Walk to End Alzheimer's event. My family has lost countless members over the past decade. I have been a caregiver, a volunteer, a team captain and an advocate multiple times. I know what it's like to walk in the shoes of 5 million other families across the country.
I walk for my family. I am an only child and I want the legacy I leave to make an impact. I'm a doer. I don't sideline well.
I walk for families who feel pressured by cultural restraints and don't know that we are here and how much the Alzheimer's Association can help.
I know that one day soon an Alzheimer's diagnosis will not be a death sentence. I know that there is something on the horizon that will change the way we treat the disease. Raising money to fund innovative research and participate in clinical trials will make that a reality! But I need your help to keep the momentum moving forward.
Bottom line, I walk for my family and yours.
Memories are all we have of one another. Let's make this a good one.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
