4 years ago, my grandma, Betty Chrestman, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. A year ago, on August 24th, she passed away. My grandma was such a beautiful and kind woman. She had the biggest heart and smile. I am very fortunate that I was able to spend a lot of time with her in the last couple of years following her diagnosis. I will remember and cherish those memories forever.
This year, I am participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's to honor my grandma and her beautiful life. I am donating to the Alzheimer's Association to help find a cure for all the other people out there with this disease. I am also volunteering this year to help the local teams and spread awareness.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my story. Cherish the time you spend with your family. Thank you for any donations.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
