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.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's
My father in law Billy Nipper was diagnosed with Alzhiemers/ Demetia in 2013. God called him home September 4, 2015. Billy was a Godly man who loved his family and friends, he was a soft spoken man who stood up for his beliefs. This disease took him from us twice, the first time by changing his personality and how he behaved. He went from being loving and soft spoken to being angry, sad, and forgetful. It was hard for Dennis and I when we had to make care decisions that we knew was for the best for Billy, and because of the disease he saw it as us being disrespectful. Making it through the bad days was heartbreaking, as well as emotionally, mentally, and physically draining. The good days where he would smile, laugh, and we would see a glimmer of who Billy truly was are memories I will treasure always. September 16th, 2016 just one year and two weeks after losing Billy my husband's uncle Robert (on his mom's side) was diagnosed with Alzhiemers/Demetia. We are now losing another family members to the dreadful disease. I am asking my friends and family if you would please support Dennis and I through this time by donating any amount vendors $1 will be appreciated. There is much that needs to be done to help stop this dreadful disease, from research and development for a cure and better medicine to reduce symptoms and increase quality of life, as a well as national required training of caregivers in nursing homes. Dennis and I know first hand that this country needs more home with memory care homes that specialize in treatment and care of those suffering from Alzhiemers/ Dementia. So many people have to leave their careers to be full time caregivers to their loved ones. Alzheimer's is an expensive disease. For every $16 that Medicare spends on Alzheimer's research the US government on spends $1. This needs to change.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
