Team Maria’s Sisters walks on behalf of my cute Italian mother, Maria, who has Alzheimers’s, and her two sisters Rocchina and Natalia who both died of Alzheimer’s in 2014 and 2016, respectively.

Those who have a parent, brother or sister with Alzheimer's are more likely to develop the disease. The risk increases if more than one family member has the illness. When diseases tend to run in families, either heredity (genetics), environmental factors, or both, may play a role.

Now that I am a woman in my 60’s (gasp!) and knowing the history of my mother and her sisters, I’m drawn to the statistics:

  • Nearly two-thirds of those with Alzheimer’s are women. 
  • One in 6 women and one in 11 men will be diagnosed with Alzheimers. 
  • Women in their 60’s are almost twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease over the rest of their lives as breast cancer.
  • You could have Alzheimer’s for up to 20 years before symptoms appear.
  • 30% struggling with Alzheimer’s have heart disease and 29% have diabetes.
  • 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia.
  • There still is no cure for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, nor can their progression be reversed. 

Please support Maria’s Sisters in the 2022 ALZ Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
