This past year has been difficult for all of us. Personally I've had several family and friends either pass away or suffer from significant medical issues. While they weren't all Alzheimer's-related, I'm helping reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's. This year the walk is at the 80th Avenue train station in Tinley Park on Saturday, October 1, 2022. The significance of this event is that my Mom (Stephanie) suffered from Alzheimer's for many years. If you've ever had a loved one suffer from this disease, then you know the devasting impact it can have on a family -- physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
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.
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you. Please consider joining me in Tinley Park for the walk. If you can't make it on October 1st but you would like to make a donation, please go to the link below. If you decide to donate, please check with your employer as they often match your donation to a qualifying organization. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. If you would like to show your support another way, please keep those suffering from Alzheimer's and their caregivers in your thoughts and prayers.Thank you for joining the movement and God Bless!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
