My grandfather William "Bill" Franklin was brilliant! He was recognized by Mensa International, the high IQ society. When we learned of his diagnosis we were devastated and not sure what to do. No family should have to make the life altering decisions we had to face; keep him home but risk his safety or place him in a memory loss facility where his surroundings are unfamiliar to him. Looking back, I know he was terrified just as we were. Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither am I. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
