My grandfather, Pop, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2003 and lived with the disease until he passed away in January 2011. As one of his caregivers, I watched first-hand how this disease took away his memories, personality, and character. Watching one of the most important people in my life die from the disease makes me want to find a cure.
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the 2021 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(tm), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
