This picture is my mom, Jean Rogers, with her babydoll, Pinky, when Mom lived at Lakeshore Heartland Nursing Home. Mom lived there for about five years before her death. Dec. 22, 2020, my dad joined Mom. He was diagnosed with Unspecified Dementia, and he lived in the same nursing home. Mom had Alzheimer’s. I’m walking in both their honors and also for the hope that soon research will find the cure to eradicate this dreaded disease for future generations. I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Together, we can end Alzheimer’s!
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
