I had no idea the true impact of Alzheimer’s has on a family until I experienced it first hand. It’s so much more than forgetting things from time to time. It’s losing the person you once knew and loved even though they are right in front of you. Its looking into eyes that no longer see you the way they once did. It’s worry, fear and concern. It’s being afraid to walk into a room and today being the day they no longer recognize you. It’s not being able to help or make it better. It’s memories you’re so afraid will fade away because you’re the only one left to remember them.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
