Alzheimer's hit close to home for our family in 1997 when my mother-in-law was over an hour late arriving at the family's Easter dinner celebration. We didn't have a name for it until several years later and by then she was trapped in a body that could no longer speak or care for itself. Fortunately, she had a son who was very involved in his church and members took shifts watching over mother for six years. Not every family has that kind of support so that is why I will walk on October 30th. We need to fund the research to combat Alzheimer’s because it isn’t stopping and neither should we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation of any amount as together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
