My name is Heather Collings, and my husband and I own D-BAT Douglasville and D-BAT Carrollton. Our business is built on relationships with our staff, clients and teams and we like to refer to them all as our Family. Since we are all a "Family", I am requesting your efforts in the fight to end Alzheimer's disease. My father, Dwayne Ford, was diagnosed with Early On-Set Alzheimer's Disease in May of 2016, at the young age of 55. Many of you may have met him at 5-Tool/Canes games and/or the facilities. Since his diagnosis, we have been thru many trials, new norms, up and downs, but in the end my father fought hard. He won his battle on December 3rd, 2019 surrounded by his family. He is missed and we will continue to fight for the first survivor in his honor.
Update: In June of 2021, we received word that one of the trials my dad was in was a success! The FDA approved the drug (Aducanumab). This drug is known to slow down the progression of the disease. My family and I are so proud of my dad for wanting to take part in such trials to help others.
We as you to help reclaim the future for millions! Join our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer's disease. Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent Alzheimer's, and provide programs and support to improve the lives of millions of affected Americans.
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you and I. Please make a donation and join us in the Walk to End Alzheimer's to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
Thank you for joining the movement!
