The fight for a cure for Alzheimer's is personal to me, as it is to so many others. Early on, I saw how hard it was for my grandmother, Evelyn, to care for my grandfather, Chock, as the onset of the Alzheimer's disease took hold. He would get angry, confused and have no patience. These were things that were very different from his normal personality. It made me realize how this disease impacts families.
Later witnessing its progression in my grandmother was also hard. First it was forgetting things like leaving the kettle on the stove, forgetting how to record her favorite show and then showing more signs of dementia. As the disease progressed, her not being able to recognize loved ones was heart-breaking.
Now that I am older, I know more people affected by this disease and other forms of dementia like Parkinson's which also took my aunt last year. If we can find a cure so other families don't have to go through what my family went through or lose their loved ones to thee disease, I'm all in.
My best friend lost her dad during the pandemic and many more families are now trying to balance work and being a care giver while raising kids. And the pressure and stress is taking its toll. Won't you help to end Alzheimer's and all dementia?
I am honored to be the volunteer co-chair for the Alzheimer's Association Silicon Valley Walk to End Alzheimer's again this year and believe that together can will find a cure. Last year with your help, we were #1 Walk.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. Will you join me? Together we can find a cure to end Alzheimer's disease and all dementia.
