I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I believe that more than so many other tragic diseases, Alzheimer's tears the family apart. I truly believe the victim suffers far less than the loved ones. I first walked in the Seacoast Walk in 2008, when my mom was deteriorating mentally in her home in a remote location on a lake -- a very isolated location. She passed a month after my 2009 Walk. This year will be my 14th Walk, and I've also participated on the Seacoast Walk Committee since 2010. This year is especially exciting as the FDA has just approved aducanumab for the treatment of the disease -- the first to treat the underlying biology of Alzheimer's and not just the symptoms!
I'm happy to report that this year's Seacoast Walk will take place physically, in downtown Portsmouth, as it has in years past (except for last year's interruption due to the COVID pandemic). Our local event will once again be based on the Little Harbour School on Sunday, September 26, 2021.
Please help me make a difference by making a donation to continue advancing the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Together, we can make Alzheimer's disease a memory! Thank you!
