I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
Watching my brother-in-law go through the dementia state and progressing into Alzheimer's and finally watching it take his life in 2010 was so hard. In a matter of five years, he went from a fun loving, big hearted man to a totally lost person and his mind could no longer tell his body what to do. I watched my Mother (Marie Holtmeyer) go through the same thing. When she looked at me and asked "who are you" or "did I eat" or "who is that", it was hard to see the wonderment in her eyes. We lost her to Alzheimer's on October 26, 2019. She was there to celebrate her 92nd birthday with all the Alzheimer's supporters on October 6, 2019. What a way to celebrate her last birthday! We need to fight this monster called Alzheimer's, find a cure or something to better the lives of the people affected.
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 methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
