Over twenty years ago, as a tribute to my grandmother Dottie, I participated in my first Walk for Alzheimer’s Disease. I continue this effort in honor of my dad, Les.
Over the years, your contributions have helped fund programs and services for Alzheimer’s patients as well as their caregivers and families. During this pandemic, staff and volunteers ensured that Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers continued to get the support they so desperately need. All programs have gone virtual, including social meetups, art programs, healthy brain and tips for early detection of Alzheimer’s.
Your contributions have also funded worldwide scientific studies, leading to advances in biomarker detection, lifestyle intervention and drugs. While these studies provide promise and hope, definitive treatments continue to be elusive and the number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is projected to be 14 million by 2050. We need to alter this trajectory and continue the fight.
Thank you for your continued support.
