I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at age 56. Most still have a hard time believing I have this hideous disease. However, I can tell and I'd known for some time that I had it. My wonderful successful family oriented giving Daddy was taken by this disease and my beautiful brilliant kind sweet Mommy has been fighting the disease for about 6 years.
I believe this horrible disease is in my Daddy's family genetics. Sadly that means I've given this propensity to Alzheimer's to my children and grandchildren. As you can imagine this is a cause so dear to my heart! So….
Alzheimer's isn't stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease -- funds that allow the Alzheimer's Association(R) 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.
