I'm passionate about ending Alzheimer's, but until that happens, I have dedicated my life to helping those living with this serial killer and their stressed out caregivers. At my own cost I travel the country speaking to those who so desperately need answers and assistance for a disease that leaves no survivors and changes the lives forever for their caregivers and loved ones.
The devastation of Alzheimer's has impacted me personally. I watched my father-in-law, one of my wife's uncles and now my wife, Gail, as Alzheimer's tortured them for years.
I was that stressed out caregiver for my wife, who was diagnosed at age 54. I watched helplessly for 11 long years as the monster stole, piece by piece, everything that was my best friend. In the end Gail looked like a victim from the Holocaust...a different monster, but the same result.
The silver lining during that terrible journey was the Alzheimer's Association. They counseled and guided us along an otherwise lonely and hostile path, they gave us a support group that saved my life and provided incredible support for Gail, they have pushed our Congress and as a result have increased research spending to find a cure.
Because of YOUR donations to the Walk to End Alzheimer's, the Alzheimer's Association provides all of these services to those in need for free...Gail and I never paid a dime for all that the Association did for us.
So help make a huge difference...help us find that CURE...donate as much as you can today, so you will not have to live in fear of Alzheimer's tomorrow.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
