As many of you already know, Nancy died this past May after enduring the insults and indignities of Alzheimer’s for 15 years, robbing us both of growing old gracefully together and our family of a very loving, thoughtful, caring, and doting mom and grandma. I have participated in this walk for the past nine years to do what I could to put an end to this cruel disease. I wish a cure could have been found before Nancy died, but since it has not, I have no choice but to continue to walk.
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 prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
