My mom, Linda, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 64 Her first grandchild had just turned one and she recently retired as a pediatric nurse at a local children’s hospital. When she dreamed of retirement full of travel and grandbabies, the reality was she was given a devastating diagnosis.
Currently, she is the late stages of Alzheimer’s and on hospice.
We hope there is one day a survivor.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. 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.
