When I was in middle school, my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. In the next several years I watched as my fun loving, hard working, devoted grandfather become less and less himself. He eventually couldn’t live at home in Fort Kent and was moved to a facility down here in Bangor that specializes in Alzheimer’s care. In the winter of 2007, he lost his battle with this disease. Since his passing 3 of his siblings have been diagnosed and two have passed because of Alzheimer’s. I’m walking to end the pain of seeing someone you love slowly forget who you are.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
