Hello! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I'm walking this year in honor of all the memory care residents affected by COVID-19 isolation. This type of isolation causes a lot of suffering and leads to worsening conditions and outcomes for people living with dementia. Besides pandemic-induced isolation, many long term care facilities are facing critical staffing shortages that are degrading the level of care residents receive. Especially for residents with dementia who are unable to advocate for themselves, this can have disastrous, inhumane consequences. Now more than ever we need to do what we can to move research forward. We can make a difference. We can honor the lives of these beautiful people as their lives and minds unwind by working to end this disease's reign once and for all. Only together will we be able to find treatments and, God willing, a cure for this devastating disease. In addition to research, the money we raise will go towards tangibly supporting people living right now with dementia in our communities.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 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 and relieve suffering. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining me in the fight against Alzheimer's!
