Because of Alzheimer's, there came a time when my mother had to retire from the classroom. The caring Miss Mary had to hang up her school books.
Because of Alzheimer's, there came a time when she forgot her loved ones and her personality changed. The quiet and elegant lady sometimes became argumentative and frustrated.
But it was not just her. Alzheimer's had us all frustrated. How could we help her? How could we help ourselves?
This is why I'm walking. I am striving to reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s 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 methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
