On January 11th of 2019, Debbie (Deborah) Lynn Tabb Pike finally won her battle against Fronto-temporal Dementia. After a decade of so much loss, she finally gained her angel wings and dancing legs once again with her three beautiful daughters and loving husband at her side.

For the past three years, I've done my best to honor my Mamaw's name and honor the great care my Papaw took of her by raising money for research, awareness, and advocacy programs and activities. Dementia affects not only the patients suffering from the disease, but their families as well-- and more families are (and will be) affected by this terrible disease than other people realize.

 

More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer's or other dementias, and these caregivers provide approximately 18.5 billion hours of care, valuing nearly $234 billion. Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and between 2000 and 2017 deaths increased 145%, while death from heart disease decreased 9%. 

Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops the disease, and 1 in 3 seniors will die from it.

The number of Americans living with the disease is growing at an alarmingly fast pace, currently an estimated 5.8 million Americans (of ALL ages) have Alzheimer's alone (not including other types of Dementia). That number is projected to increase to 13.8 million people by 2050.

Currently, there is NO CURE or definitive cause for Dementia and Alzheimer's, or a treatment that will stop progression of the disease, only symptom offset drug therapies.

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP???

 

The only way we are ever going to find a cure for the disease is through research, public awareness, and advocacy. 

77% Alzheimer's Association's total annual expenses go to disease care, support, research, awareness and advocacy activities, while 19% goes to fundraising. 

Every dollar, every social media share, every minute, and every brain matters, please consider donating to a cause that is so near and dear to my heart. I pray for the day families no longer have to watch their loved ones deteriorate as mine did.

Please consider donating or joining my team, and together we can Walk to End Alz.
