I have created my team in memory of my mother, Lucille Foster, who died of Alzheimer's six years ago. She lived with the disease approximately 10 years, and it was a painful experience for her family. I watched her decline over the years, and now I am passionate about raising awareness of this disease and raising funds to hopefully find a cure. I treasure the memories I have with my mom, from shopping to going on vacations together, and time spent with my grandchildren.
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 methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
