It's that time of year. Gearing up and asking my Facebook family to donate for my upcoming Alzheimer's walk in Fargo!
I walk and fundraise simply to do my part in destroying this merciless disease. After spending a good part of ten years learning and seeing first hand how robs people from being their own person I will help fight for that first person to overcome and survive Alzheimer's. It's been over three since my dad has passed from this disease and my family and I are still processing it all. So hard to express the highs and lows of it all. The highs of dad remembering me or his kids for a fleeting moment. To the lows as he struggled to remember his wife of 66 years.
So I'm selfishly asking for your help. I'd love nothing better than to never hear the word Alzheimer's again. For my family and importantly yours too.
Thanks for helping me and Alzheimer's community out any way you can.
I'm helping reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R). 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 make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
Thank you for joining the movement!
