1 in 3 seniors die with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Since 2000, death from Alzheimer's has risen 89%.
It has profoundly affected my family and the families of those who walk with me. This amazing group of family & friends includes caregivers and folks who lost siblings, parents, grandparents & friends.
I, like many of us slowly lost my Mom & my Nan twice. And now my StepDad is suffering. First battling daily frustration, confusion and embarrassment from losing control of communication skills, memories and the ability to perform basic daily activities. Then again when the disease finally took the remaining shell of who we remember.
My family, friends & I are 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.
