The End of Alzheimer's Starts With Me.I have been in the fight against Alzheimer's since 2011 when I volunteered for my first Walk at Citizens Bank Park with my sister Vicki. We were learning about the impact that the disease was having on families, including our Mom. She was diagnosed in April of 2011.
It was then that I decided to fundraise in order to support our family as well as others who were dealing with what we were going through. When facing difficulties, you can often feel alone in your fight and alone. Sadly we lost my Mom in June of 2013 from complications of Alzheimer’s. We also lost my aunt (Mom’s sister to the disease). On September 29, 2019 we lost my sister Vicki to a form of dementia at the early age of 61.
The sadness of this disease can be overwhelming and the sense of community that these walks bring are a tremendous support and outlet. The people I have met through this journey have been absolutely incredible and I know together we will beat this disease.
Thank you so much for joining me in the fight to #ENDALZ whether through spirit or financially!
Every dollar I raise through Walk to End Alzheimer’s allows the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Whether we’re together at an in-person gathering or in small groups in our individual neighborhoods, we can make a difference. The health and safety of our constituents, staff and volunteers will be our top priority as we assess the changing status of the pandemic and make a decision about how we’ll walk in 2021.
