I am walking for my mom. In 2017. I had to call the police to have her taken out of her home. At that moment I knew she would never go back to the home. She was so independent and so proud of her home. It broke my heart but I needed to keep her safe. Fast forward to 2021. She no longer speaks or walks. The pandemic and lack of interaction with visitors had led to a rapid decline in her health. She is now suffering from Congestive Heart Failure and I have no idea how much time she has left. I fundraise to make sure no other family has to go through this heartache.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
