What a shock it is to be told that someone you care about has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. You do not want to believe it. Most of us assume that it will be someone older than we are, a parent, a grandparent, an elderly friend of the family. But today we are seeing more diagnoses of early onset Alzheimer’s. Rather than a middle-aged person being faced with the care, responsibility, and loss of a parent, it is the parents who are faced with the loss of their child. Alzheimer’s has no compassion, no boundaries, no cure.
By joining our team, we hope to be able to provide support for all the people who must deal with this illness. Maybe someday we will see a treatment, a cure. Until then, let us be advocates. Let us educate. Let us encourage research.
We are asking all Team members to make a minimum donation of $50. Please note that if you make a donation of $100 or more you will receive a T-shirt in advance of our walk from the Alzheimer's Association.
We hope you will join Helene's Team and/or make a donation. As a team member or a donor who is not able to attend the walk, please consider donating at one of the following sponsorship levels:
Hero - $10,000
Champion - $5,000
Advocate - $2,500
Friend - $1,000
Thank you for your support!
