I am fundraising in memory of my mother, Emelie, and to help bring an end to Alzheimer's for us and for future generations. While we lost her to Alzheimer's in 2019, her spirit is with me every day, and she continues to be an inspiration in so many aspects of my life.
The statistics are staggering: one in eight older Americans has Alzheimer's disease; Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States; it is the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.
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. 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.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
