Its hard to believe, but it was 8 years ago my sister Rebecca and I started walking. This is a cause near to my heart. Alzheimer’s can run in families, and it runs in mine. This disease is relentless and unforgiving. Sadly, after dad's passing, we had to put mom into a care facility. This was hardest thing we’ve had to do. Not only finding a place where she would be safe, but also a place where they genuinely care about the patients is so hard. Unfortunately, Covid didn't make this any easier. We actually had to go a full 3 months without being able to see her in person. We've now installed a Ring camera in her room, and she has been vaccinated and we can once again see her. This disease has made it impossible to know if she feels safe and loved, but we try. I know we all do what we can, but we must find a cure! By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I've committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support. Please feel free to join our team and walk virtually with us.
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. Any amount, no matter how small, would be great. 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, and it starts with us.
I wish you all the best,
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
