Have you ever thought about thinking or remembering? Most of us probably haven't. We take it for granted. Unfortunately all too many people are losing these abilities to Alzheimers, and it is happening at earlier and earlier ages.
Our team, Fighters, is fighting for memories, and the ultimate goal of making Alzheimers a memory in and of itself. My wife Lisa was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimers in early 2019 at age 55. She continues to live an active and healthy lifestyle facing the daily struggles that all in the early stages do. There is a long journey ahead of us, one we will navigate with love and dignity. We pray and hope for progress in finding a cure or even a drug to slow the progression for her, but do not dwell on that hope and live every day we have to the fullest.
Alzheimer's currently has no cure, no treatments to stop, delay or prevent the disease -- and no survivors. But this can change too. The first survivor of Alzheimer's is out there but your help is needed to get there.
Our family will again be participating in Walk to End ALZ on Saturday September 18 at 10am at Target Field in Minneapolis. We would love to have those of you interested join us in our walk. You can walk with us or walk wherever you are, and join us in thoughts. Last year we had walkers in Wisconsin, California, Illinois, and Costa Rica. We also had bikers in the Twin Cities! There is no commitment to walk with us. All we ask is you reach out to us for information! As Helen Keller said "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Too many lives are impacted by this cruel disease and we need to find a cure. Please consider donating to advance the cure, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. 3M and many other companies will match donations. Please take advantage to double your impact! If you need info let me know.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's. Your support means a great deal to our entire family. God bless you all.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
