Our Walk to end ALZ is this Saturday, October 3, 2020. Thanks for contributing in Patti's name. This year's walk will be virtual and you can follow the ALZ.org links to join in.
When Patti got her ALZ t-shirt I was really hyped. Then, I realized I'd misread the shirt. I thought it said, "EAT the way to the first survivor." I was imagining a grand banquet or even a cruise ship buffet! Oops, it actually says, "LEAD the way to the first survivor."
If the research is correct, probably the cure will come to folks who don't have symptoms YET. Studies now show that ALZ is present within your body 10-20 years before the progressive deterioration begins. That's the future. Right now thousands live with the continuous drip, drip, drip of their dignity and wellbeing. The disease impacts not simply the person, but the whole family.
Thanks to all of you for your marvelous support. Without you, I have no idea where we'd be today.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
