Alzheimer's has been a part of my life for a long time. My grandfather was diagnosed with dementia back in 2000 and sadly passed away in 2006. After that, my grandmother spent her Mondays volunteering at the Alzheimer's Association and that was a huge passion of hers. She volunteered at several events including the Walk to End Alzheimer's every year in Indianapolis until she passed away in March 2016. I also worked with people in their homes and nursing homes with dementia and it was hard most days, but I know that they are loved and cared for. I walk for my grandparents Robert and Muriel Hornsby and ALL the clients I have cared for through my part time job at Select Senior Care.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
