I lost my mother to Alzheimer's in 2013 and my sister In October 2019. In their honor I am walking to make more folks aware of this disease. Mom may not have known who I was specifically by name any longer, but she knew I was "someone special" in her final years.
My sister Penny was also diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I lost her this past year. I want to help raise funds for Alzheimer's research so others won't have to experience the gradual loss of a loved one before there physical time has come!
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
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 need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
